Dutch coffee shop says
cannabis smoke here to stay
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) Could a smoking ban
spell the end of Amsterdam's world famous coffee
shops, where smoking cannabis is one of the main
No chance, says local conservative politician and
coffee shop owner Michael Veling.
The Dutch may well follow other European coun-

tries in banning tobacco smoking in restaurants, cafes and bars, but
Veling says it should still be possible to smoke dope.
"It is ridiculous to think that a smoking ban would be the end
of coffee shops," the 50-year-old Veling says.
He says the clientele who have been coming to coffee shops to
buy and inhale cannabis are flexible enough to find a way around
any ban on smoking the tobacco products they routinely mix with
marijuana resin or leaf in rolled paper "joints."
"You can bring parsley or old socks if you want, cut
them here and smoke them, nobody will say anything,"
Veling said.

"Plus there are plants that have a every similar struc-
ture to tobacco and can maybe substitute for it."

Eight charged in

history-making bust

By Ruel Johnson
Eight men have been charged
in the biggest seizure of
goods in the history of the
Guyana Revenue Authority,
the so-called Valentine's Day
Bust earlier this year.
The eight are Joseph
Sahadeo aka Daddo of Industry,
ECD; Krishendat Ramdin, also
known as Pokeman or Khrishna,
Good Hope: Mark Chandra,
Annaida Avenue, Eccles, EBD:
UmbarAngad, Friendship, ECD:

also of Good Hope.
This opens up a new, and
long-awvaited chapter, in a series
of events which began with the
February 14th seizure of a quan-
tity of various beverages from
aboard the M.V. Lady Kimberly.
Customs Enforcement Offi-
cials, Gavin De Jong and
Ramnarine Makardajh, had
said, according to an earlier
story on the case, that the opera-
tion began during the early
hours of Valentine's Day, follow-
ing intelligence that there was
a vessel containing smuggled
goods moored at Rambarran's
wharf, Land of Canaan, East
Bank Demerara. When the of-
ficers arrived at the wharf, some
of the goods had already been
off-loaded from the vessel which
made off in a bid to escape.

However, the enforcement team
pursued the vessel and inter-
cepted it while it was in hiding
behind an island further south
in the Demerara River, the au-
thority said.
More than 4.000 cases of
Heineken. 500 cases of assorted
liquor, such as Grey Goose.
Bailey's. Tequila. Hennessey,
Absolute Vodka (assorted).
Black Label Whisky. Johnny
Walker-Whisky. and more than
300 cases of Red Bull were
among the seized items. The
goods amounted to some $70
million dollars in total.

vessel, was originally arrested
with crew members Ali.

other men were later implicated

SUNDAY CHRONICLE April 22, 2007 5

United National Congress
(UNC) leader Basdeo Panday
is considering legal action af-
ter he made it only as far as
the steps of the Red House
Friday, before being blocked
by armed police from enter-
ing the Parliament.
It was a dramatic lead-in to
the resumption of Lower House
sittings which had already been
on hold for three weeks because
of Panday.
Accompanied by his daugh-
ter Mikela and UNC MPs,
Panday was blocked by police
when he arrived at 1.05 pm, to
enter the Parliament via the
Knox Street entrance.
Panday was informed by
Senior Superintendent Wayne
Gilbert that on instruction from
the Commissioner of Police, he
could not enter Parliament.
Gilbert, who held the gate
against Panday, was supported
by a team of police behind him.
Panday subsequently
vowed to remain there along
with his team.
The stand-off on the steps,
at the front of the entrance,
lasted for almost 72 minutes.
The UNC team then de-
cided that MP Roodal Moonilal
would enter the Parliament to
represent the party in
yesterday's debate on the Equal
Opportunity Bill.
While Panday held forth
outside, House Speaker Barry
Sinanan delivered a statement to
MPs explaining why Panday
was blocked.
Panday said he intended to
return to the House again next
week, to try and enter.
He said Sinananan had con-
tacted him on Thursday, asking
him to come and see him at 1.15
pm. yesterday.
"This morning (Friday),
however, the Speaker called me
at home and told me he is not
going to let me into the Parlia-
ment and he didn't want to see
me again," Panday said.
"He cancelled the 1.15 pm

appointment, indicating he was
going to bar me from coming to
Parliament. even if I was going
to sit in the Public Gallery...he
said he wouldn't let me be ad-
mitted to the Parliament.
"He did mention that the
High Court determination of the

Couva North seat was pending.
"I told him my legal adviser
said that I am innocent until
proven guilty.
"I said the Appeal Court
quashed the conviction against
me and that nullified the va-
cancy declared in the seat, so
I'm entitled to enter Parliament
and do the work for which
25,000 people elected me."
Panday said Sinanan hinted.
about action to block him.
"I didn't realise it was go-
ing to be here on the

doorstep...But this situation
had to happen since it forms the
basis of legal action,"' he added.
He said blocking him
from entering the building
was an illegal act and breach
of the Constitution.
He added that any Couva
North constituent could now
bring action against the police
and whoever instructed them.
since their right to representa-
tion had been breached.
Panday said his lawyers
were also examining the situa-
tion with a view to possible le-
gal action.
"They'll determine if this
will be against the police,
Speaker, whoever," he said.
Panday said Sinanan might
have decided to take action at
the steps rather than remove
him inside the Chamber to pre-
vent a spectacle.
"This is clearly a con-
spiracy between the Speaker
and the PNM to keep the issue
of the seat in the court until elec-
tions, since nothing has hap-
pened on the court's end since
the matter was filed," he said.
While Panday received
shouted support from some
UNC members present, a
Congress of the People sup-
porter loudly challenged him
to "Rest yourself...!"
Panday decided to leave
soon after a shouting match
erupted among supporters.

BRIAN CHARLES LARA, the greatest internationally renown
batsman produced by the West Indies, played his final Test in-
ning yesterday at Kensington Oval with an estimated 22,000
fans waving and shouting their sad farewell, many of them
with difficulties to restrain the tears
It was his deeply shared hope that the West Indies would win
yesterday's match against England to end up in fifth position know-
ing that both teams were already out of the semi-finals.
But in a memorable nail-biting, tension-filled battle that kept
both teams valiantly struggling to the end as moods of their
supporters kept changing, the English reached the winning tar-
get of 301 with just one delivery left. Lara's disappointment is
that of the West Indian people. It was, nevertheless, a fantastic
match, regarded by experienced commentators as the best played
so far in this World Cup.

For all the sharp crititicismi,.prior to \ esierda\ 's fierce duel
at Kensington O\ al. that had surfaced fron disappointed fani,
over recurnng poor performances in recent \ears b\. the West
Indies team under his captainc. w hen Lara announced his re-
tirement last Thursda\, the shock and hurt were fell
b\ admirers and detractors alike.
Because he had come to embod\ so much of our West In-
dian pride as he dazzled the world of cricket w ith his genius as
a batting sensation, we kept expecting too much too often from
him and, finding it too difficult to conceal our disappointments
when expectations were unfulfilled, there flowed the emotional
criticisms, some quite unkind at times.
Now the 37-year-old international cricket icon has chosen to bo1lx
out of the West Indies team and world cricket. He had started his
professional career 17 years ago. It has ended with a most impressive.
enviable world record of approximately 12.000 runs: another world
record with his hit of 400 runs not out, and a total of 34 centuries to
his illustrious career..
Yesterday. in a fine gesture, consistent with the spirit of
the world's third greatest sporting event. England's captain
Michael Vaughan. led his team in a guard-of-honor to salute Lara
as he made his entry to bat for the last time for the West Indies
and as an international superstar of the game.
Regretably, he was run out after scoring just 18 runs. He
would have loved to make many more. if not a century-Lone
last time for his ever adoring fans. It made no difference.
The thousands of spectators. West Indians and visitors of
various nittionalities, were standing all over Kensington Oval to
lustily cheer and wave as the cricket genius from. Trinidad and
Tobago walked back to the pavilion, stoically waving above his
head in warm appreciation the tool with which he has indelibly

\w written his fame in \Vest Indian and w world cricket histor\i-his
When Lara returns to KKensington O\ l on Saturda. April

It would be open for all willing to pa\ L'SS125 to be at his
leased sprawl, ling Barbados mansion in the parish of St. Peter-
after the closing ceremony at Kensineton O\ al.
Born on May 2. it promises to be a memorable pre-
38th birthday party for the 'cricket prince' who seems
headed to be the recipient of coming national awards
andhopefully. honoured also by CARICOM.

WHILE THERE would be impressive national infrastructure
facilities and standing regional security mechanisms as posi-
tive legacies of our hosting of Cricket World Cup 07, the debit
side of pain and shame suffered at cricket venues-on and off
the cricket grounds-seem destined to linger and hurt us well
into, and possibly beyond, Cricket World Cup Asia 2011.
By then. hopefully, we would have had the findings of an inde-
pendent probe-perhaps conducted by the University of the West
Indies-to determine why so muLch went wrong since our success-
ful bid to host the historic event back in 1998.
Question is who will bell the proverbial cat in what renlains a blame-
shifting game involving principally the West Indies Cricket Board and its
incorporated subsidiary.Cricket World Cup West Indies. and Caribbean
Community governments to objectively assess the extent to which tile
punishing tentacles of the International Cricket Council (ICC) were spread
ovcr nalional/regional sovereignty?
Could such a t necessary probe properly be initiatiated by
the WICB. that cannot escape a shameful process of genuflecting
to the dictates of the rich and pow-
ri'ul who run the ICC. in view of
deLpenIdeince that may have already
resulted from funding anaingemenlts
for the Board?
Or. must it really be, its some
well-placed West Indians feel, the _
moral obligation of CARICOM Heads ,"
of Government to boldly authorise _
such a probe. This. despite their own
perceived negligence in required over- '
sight and/or misplaced trust, for too / .
Inc as key negotiators with the ICC?
For the many West Indians
who have had to endure humilia-
tion at the nine cricket venues in
the numerous restrictions for
matches-including stadiums en-
trance and departure: high-priced CHRIS D.HRING
seating arrangements with various
cases of embarrassing unilateral changes at some venues: in taking
of food and drinks (including size of bottled water), and the depri-
vation of traditional musical instruments for entertainment-it may
be easy to pour blame on Local Organising Committees (LOCs).
Also. for the level of control by the ICC/CWC Inc over park-
and ride sites that have led to indignities suffered by even some
high state dignitaries in Barbados, as well as the denial of the Na-
tional Council on Substance Abuse (NCSA) to place flyers on cars
-at such locations in their education campaign against drunk-driving.
For their part, having resolved their own differences over the,
extent of CARICOM's involvement in the bidding processes for
CWC 07. some Community leaders are now sweetly saying that.
"on hindsight", they should have moved early to avoid some of the
problems that thousands of cricket fans have encountered.

The leaders may well have gone w-rong when they initially failed
to adopt a police\ of unanimity. as proposed by one Prime Minits-
ter-and with ii : t".'.I ",'3 11 ...... lauding the objection-that
was to result in the individual country bidding. instead of a unani-
mousls agreed initiate e to take care of all events. starting from the
ceremonial launch of01 the World Cup. to the final and
encompassing the preliminaries, super eight and semi-finals.
in contrast,. tfor World Cup 2011. the Asian Cricket Council IACC(
haCe alivad decided, on their own. according to media repors.oi, on the ie .-
posCed \e nues for the oip.ning ceremony i Bangla.desh): xsemi-iaIs Paki-
stan and Sn Lanka, cll asl the final Iduli..
More sCignificantl,. CARICOM leaders were faced ith a \ ir-

Imtiiiant,: of a tle\ of their uosn more \ igilant and alert AtortneI ,
eclcill-\\, h tlhe\ should be tadamantL in demanliding lo irccci\c .
cop. ol the c\ ital Hosm Agreeiment (HA) entered into b1 t;-\

WICB/CWC Inc with the ICC. before engaging in further meetings
on their own obligations.
That Host Agreement was. unbelievably, being withheld until
then, by the WICB/CWC Inc from CARICOM governments, whose
commitment and support they had sought and obtained for hosting
the ICC's World Cup, until faced with refusal to continue the con-
sultative process.
The CWC's Chief Execcutive Officer. Chris Dehring. who has
been the lead negotiatoro' with the ICC. recently felt compelled to
go on the offensive. in the face of mountin-g
complaints,'with a defensive recitation of the sequencing of
developments for our hosting CWC 07.
Dehring well.knows of the demonstrated anger that led to the
late handing over of vital agreements. starting with the Host
Agreement, delivery of which had already been preceded with
a Master Rights Agreement (MRA) between the ICC and Global
Cricket Corporation (part of Rupert Murdoch's business
empire), for exclusive broadcasting and commercial rights, to which
NO changes could legally be made.

Significantly, when CARICOM representatives started show-
ing keen interest in what they were being required to support. and
realized the extent to which our collective sovereignty were being
undermined, both ICC and CWC Inc officials were ready to raise
alarm about possible shift of World Cup 2007 to either South Af-
rica or Australia.
It was clearly an orchestrated strategy-and one, sadly. for
which some of our governments fell--to scare them into largely
concur with what had been presented ., them (by the WICB/CWC
representatives) as a "done deal".
However enormous the ICC pressure-in which Caribbean na-
tionals of CWC Inc, shared-CARICOM leaders should have
known that South Africa, host of the 2003 Cricket World Cup,
would hot have been a party to an evident blackmail of our Carib-
bean region. Not after the firm pledge of support with relevant tech-
nical assistance for CARICOM that had previously been publicly
offered by President Thabo Mbeki for hosting the tournament.
For its part, it is doubtful that the. government of
Australia would have been keen either to serve as
alternative host for CWC 07, once informed of our principled
opposition to the inordinate, undignified pressures from the
ICC to circumscribe the region's sovereignty and make a
mockery of the pride of Caribbean people..
Overwhelmed as thev were about the prospects and legacies of
CWC 07. CARICOM leaders apparently settled to hope for the
best by placing too much faith in the competence and integrity of
the WICB/CWC Inc negotiators with the ICC. Was this case of
misplaced trust? An independent probe should help establish.
The leaders even show ed little or no interest '. when a very seri-
ous warning surfaced publicly in September 2005 from then chair-
man of CWC Inc. Raim le Brancker. Barbadian business executive
and former West Indies cricketer. for a due diligence and forensic
exercise into the management of CWC Inc.
It w as a call preceded b \ ongoing disagreements at meetings in-
Sol inm the CEO's Dehring and Brancker about the consequences
ol lack of proper accountability in host managementinegotiating ar-
rangement- and the apparent free ride the ICC \ as enTjo\ ing is ;
demands for comphitnc'.

Such demands were later to be discovered a, beine firmni se-
cured among 'the non-negoti;t.e,'i pro\ i.ions o the Host Agreement
HA\ : Host \ cnue Agreement i H\.-\ and the all-embracing "'Sunset

Legislation" with its provisions governing ticketing, marketing and
security arrangements. *
In contrast to the explanation/defence CWC's Dehring recently
offered to the media, he was declaring to-journalists back in Sep-
tember 2005 when questioned on Brancker's criticisms and call for
a management audit, that he had "no time for peripheral issues" since
his focus was on "delivering the Cricket World Cup".




Well, that-"delivery" has taken place-with its mix of positive
legacies and serious negative consequencies-as the WICB/CWC
Inc's top officials, like Ken Gordon (President), CEO Dehring and
Legal Counsel Derek Jones would be aware-and involving
worrying CARICOM leaders and ministers being forced to demand
copies of vital documents that were being kept fronI them-whether
by default or design.
In the ongoing post mortem on CWC 07 and, required inde-
pendent probe, it may be relevant for official attention to be paid to
demands being made elsewhere, including that of Lord MacLaurin-
former chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board-for a
thorough, independent review of the structure and management of
the ICC itself, to ensure, as he said. "that wg really have the best
people running world cricket..."
In echoing a similar sentiment, there are, without a doubt, end-
less thousands across the Caribbean anxious to extend such a call
also to the WICB, as a priority, for the future development of West
Indies cricket. So, who will bell the cat?

MEANWHILE, as local plans are being pursued to establish
an independent management committee for the Guyana National
Stadium, the hope is that indepen-
dent thought would also help to in-
fluence the naming of the main pa-
vilion after the great Cli\e Lloyd

Silly season

A CARTOON in the
Trinidad Guardian captured
the essence of the political
season that the country has
entered when it showed a
man telling a grinning poli-
tician outside his door that
he was waiting for a long
time to give him something.
Behind the man was a fero-
cious dog with sharpened teeth
covering most of his face.
Although a date has not yet
been announced, general elec-
tions fever is running sky-high
in the country.
Politicians and their large
entourage in the colours of their
political parties are suddenly
bombarding towns and villages,
kissing babies, pinching the
cheeks of toddlers, flying kites
and playing cricket with chil-
dren, hugging old people, rush-
ing to give handshakes and high-
fives to those in passing vehicles
with smiles plastered on their
Yep, they are making the
once in a five year trek to hear
about people's concerns about
the clogged drains, the impass-
able roads, the lack of pipe-
borne water, non-functioning
electricity poles on the roads,
the need for regular police pa-
trols, praedial larceny, high food
prices and a litany of other ills
lacing them.
Last weekend, Prime Min-
ister Patrick Manning, who is
leading a vigorous campaign for
his People's National Move-
ment (PNM) for re-election, had
to beat a hasty retreat when he

PEOPLES from the colonial

lies in the fact that their es-
tablishment did not respond
to metropolitan initiatives.
since their origin was associ-
ated first of all. with the sink-
ing of two black slave ships
along the coasts of St.
Vincent and with the move-
ment of slaves, who, fleeing
from the cruelties of that so-
cial system of exploitation,
found refuge in the moun-
tains inhabited by the indig-
enous peoples of that island,
- and from there they moved
on to the neighboring is-
.lands. The move from one is-
land to another was linked to
the Garifunas' confronta-
tions with the authorities of
various European countries,
who sought to reduce them fo
submission in order to return
them-to slave labour or hoped
to occupy the territories
where they were located. .
Later on, the advancement
of English exploitations along the
Central American coasts-re-
sulted in many workers relocat-

led to those coasts being 'popu-
lated with Africans.

Cricket, the IMF and

West Indian pride

(The writer is a business
consultant and former
Caribbean diplomat)

Scott: if there breathe a West
Indian whose heart within
him did not burn as the West
Indies cricket team played an
opponent his soul would be
Over the last few weeks as
the Cricket World Cup (CWC)
tournament has been played in
the West Indies, the chests of
West Indians all over the world
have swelled with pride that
their small countries have suc-
cessfully hosted the tournament
despite the enormous challenges
This feeling of pride was
wonderfully captured by the
writer, poet and sugar industry
executive, Ian McDonald in an
insightful article entitled, "Give
Credit", about the new cricket
stadium in Guyana when. he
"Should we not be enthused
by the overall success that was
achieved against so many odds
and obstacles and should we not

praise to the full those who
worked tirelessly to bring off
this astonishing endeavour -
building the Stadium. getting the
infrastructure done, cleaning the

city and surroundings, securing
the event, administering the lo-
gistics, welcoming the visitors?
"Personally I shall never
forget the rush of pride and ex-
citement I experienced when I
walked with my wife and son
and friends into the Stadium at
Providence for the first time and

joined the bustle and enthusiasm
of the filled to capacity crowd.
The friendliness of the volun-
teers and staff at every turn was
a great help."
Significantly, Ian McDonald
w-ent on to say: ."The abject,
spineless performance by the
West Indies team on the field
against Sri Lanka that day and
the rain-clouds scudding over-
head could not lessen or dampen
for me the greatness of the oc-
casion or the feeling of exhila-
rating self-worth."
While the hopes of West
Indians were lifted with ex-
pectation that the West
Indies would do well and
might even win the tourna-
ment as they used to do, the
only burning in the hearts of
West Indians came not from
the flame of pride but from
the blister of disappointment
as their team gave one mis-

other eventually being

The end of the

ar on

THE "Axis of Good" is start-
ing to crumble. It is several
months yet before British
Prime Minister Tony Blair's
promise to retire falls due,
but already his current and
former cabinet colleagues are
trying to put some distance
between themselves and his
most disastrous legacy, the
invasion of Iraq. This is caus-
ing some embarrassment to
his American and Australian
partners in crime, President
George W. Bush and Prime
Minister John Howard.
(Only those three countries
actually shot and bombed their
way into Iraq, although lots of
others showed up later for a
It started in New York on
Tuesday with Mr. Hilary Benn,
the International Development
Secretary in the Blair cabinet
and a contender to be deputy
prime minister or foreign secre-
tary when he goes. Benn re-
vealed that the British govern-
ment had told all its diplomats
to stop using the phrase "war
on terror" last December, be-
cause "we can't win by military.
means alone. And because this
isn't us against one organised
enemy with a clear.identity and
a coherent set of-objectives."
It was a dangerous phrase,
Benn continued, because it im-

puted power, organisation and
common purpose to "a small
number of loose, shifting and
disparate groups who have rela-
tively little in common apart
from their identification with
others who share their distorted
view of the world. By letting
them feel part of something big-
ger, we give them strength."
It was a small act of rebel-
lion, but a significant one, for
Prime Minister Blair's own
website still uses the phrase
"war on terror" a mind-numb-
ing 154 times. Blair's official
spokesperson, asked about the
discrepancy, replied tight-
lipped: "We all use our own
phraseology." And it was signifi-.
cant that Hilary Benn made his
speech not .in. Britain but in the
United States, where' it would
,cause maximum offence to Presi-
dent Bush, the originator and
most frequent abuser of the of-
fending phrase.
Blair's loss of authority
over his own government was
underlined the following day
in Australia, when Helen
Liddell, the British High
Commissioner (ambassador),
was asked about Benn's re-
marks. "Phrases like war on
terror, these are-tabloid slo-
gans," she replied and
went on to say something that
must have caused Prime


Minister John Howard great
For four years, ever since
he sent Australian troops to in-
vade Iraq, Howard has insisted
that they are there to fight ter-
rorism: "Iraq is not a diversion
from the war on terror, it is the
front line and we must face this

This summons up an in-
triguing image of potential
South-East Asian terrorists
checking each night for news
from Iraq as they hover on the
cusp of a choice between life as
a terrorist and a career in accoun-
tancy, but their actual motiva-
tions are probably a bit more
complex than that. What's inter-
esting is not that John Howard
is wrong: it's that the British
High Commissioner in Canberra
said he was wrong. Ambassa-
dors don't normally do that.
Helen Liddell was a merii-
ber of Tony Blair's cabinet in.
2003 when Britain took the-
decision to join the Bush ad-
ministration in invading Iraq,
and she spoke with the cer-
tainty of one who knows

where the bodies are buried:
"\Ve have neser seen Iraq as
part of the war on terrorism.
Certainly at the moment %\e
are engaged in a war on the
streets in Afghanistan. in Iraq
against terrorism. But our
raison d'etre for our insolve-
ment in Iraq has not been
about terrorism."
This will annoy John
Ho\\ard but it won't actually
hurt him. as he has just per-
suaded Australian voters to give
him yet another .three-year
term. The real. message of these
events is that the new British
cabinet that is installed this
summer after Blair leaves office.
presumably under the prime
ministership of Gordon Brow n.
is not going to be tied by Blair's
dogmas and Blair's commit-
ments. Australia may soon be
America's ONLY remaining sig-
nificant ally in Iraq.
But there is another mes-
sage, too: words matter. The
"war on terror" was an ex-
tremely pernicious concept that
led its purveyors down some
very strange pathways, because
both words were misleading.
"Terror," or terrorism, isn't
a thing you can have a war

And that's the other word
that's a problem. By calling it
a war, the Bush administration
conditioned the American pub-
lic to expect invasions of whole
countries and then deliv-
ered them. Whether the inva-
sions of Afghanistan and Iraq
actually increased the "terror-
ist threat" to the West is still
a contentious issue among
military experts and strategic
analysts, but they certainly
didn't diminish it by much. It's
a lucky thing that the threat is
still so very small.

I I often think that NIS is a waste of time. I would like to stop payiig-for
myself and employees and pay a private insurance. Why can't I? *, :





Unfortunately, there are persons who are still not fully aware of the role-
of Social Security. As a result, there will be some degree of discontent
resulting in such feelings. Social Security unlike other forms-of insurance,
is always compulsory. It is a sign of civilization and a means&of providing
for the citizens of a country. The Benefits that can be derived outweigh the
contributions made by persons. This is because the spread of risk is
much greater (the entire country).


The Social Security Act ensures that workers are protected by securing '
income. While some employers, even some self-Employed persons, will
protect their workers and themselves so that they do not become a
liability on society when faced with certain conditions, many will opt not
to-do so. Social Security contributes to protecting the social fabr -of --1

with extreme force. That period experienced the development of the banana and lumber economy,
for which it was necessary to import labour from the islands, mainly from Barbados, Jamaica,
the Cayman Islands and San Andr6s.
However, the depression of the 1930s affected the economic development of the plantations, just
as in most Caribbean countries and from that moment, the zone began to experience an economic de-
cline that drove the population into poverty, which still persists in that region. This gave rise to a
trend of internal emigration to the capitals of their respective Central American countries and another
trend toward the exterior, primarily to the United States.
Today, those years of colonial exploitation are reflected in the conditions of existence of the Garifunas,
who are recognized as an excluded and isolated people, which socially, makes them highly vulnerable.
-It is as a-result of this that the governments of the region are expressing growing, interest in helping the
Garifunas to overcome the ills that affect them,. That explains the Central American Summit to com-
memorate two hundred and ten years of Garifuna presence in Central America, which was held on
April 10 in Honduras.
In that vein and in keeping with the intergovernmental interest expressed, the Association of Car-
ibbean States is promoting the project "The Social, Cultural and Economic, Integration of .the Afro-
Caribbean and Garifuna Communities of Central America".

One year ago, Sash Sawh,
his brother, sister and secu-
rity guard were brutally mur-
dered. This cruel, heinous
deed left us totally devastated
and shocked by what had oc-
curred. Those of us who as-
sociated personally and po-
litically with Sash were
thrown into a dark night of
horrible despair. Today, one
year later, we continue to
mourn for him and we pon-
der how things'might have
been if he were still around.
My memories of Sash go
back to 1971 when I first met
him in Georgetown where he
was already politically active as
a member of the Progressive
Youth Organisation. He was
that jolly, affable boy attending
Indian Education Trust College,
where I was one of his
teachers, and was every
popular for his wit and
roaring laughter trade-
marks which remain with
him to the day he died.
When Sash went
away to Canada, we
never lost touch. An oc-
casional note now and
then would come from
him, but I did not see him
again until 1980. I1 was in
Moscow as part. of a
PPP delegation having a
meeting with Soviet offi-
cials at the hotel where
we were staying.-Sud-
denly I heard an ani-
mated jolly laughter out-
side and I immediately told my
hosts that the laugh sounded
very familiar- like that of some-
one I knew back in Guyana.
I pushed open the door
and, sure enough, there was
Sash standing there in active
conversation with a group of
Canadian political activists.
who were on a visit to the So-
viet Union. It was indeed a
joyous reunification with
him and we had a few
lunches and dinners together
before he and his group left

for a .visit to another part of
the country.
Back in Toronto he was ever
busy, between his studies, to
masterly conduct political ac-
tivities to build awareness in
Canada for the struggle for de-
mocracy in Guyana. He and his
comrades in the Association of
Concerned Guyanese partici-
pated in numerous public dem-
onstrations and meetings with
Canadian politicians as part of
their lobbying exercise to urge
the restoration of free and fair
elections in their homeland.
I remember how excited he
was about the monthly Guyana
Current which he edited and
made very popular in Canada,
and from time to time I received
letters from him requesting me
to write articles for the paper


which informed readers of po-
litical developments in Guyana.
In particularly, I recall viv-
idly his convincing argument in
August 1992 to a group of
Guyanese businessmen resident
in New York that the PPP/Civic
would win the forthcoming elec-
tions in Guyana. Dr. Jagan had
asked me and Vic Oditt to meet
with the businessmen who were
not at all politically friendly to
the PPP which had languished
for almost three decades in the
opposition. Sash, who was in

New York visiting his relatives.
somehow learned about this
meeting and he managed to con-
tact me since he wanted to join

us at the function. I asked him
to come along to the meeting
which was held on a rainy
evening at an up-scale restaurant
in Manhattan. There he assisted
me and Vic in a gruelling debate
with the business group who,
after about three hours, were
convinced that the PPP/Civic
would convincingly win the
elections in the light of the elec-
toral reforms and the presence
of international observers.
Within a year after the
PPP/Civic rolled to victory,
Dr. Jagan called Sash back
to Guyana and then sent him
as Ambassador to Caracas
where he went through a pe-
riod of anxiety before he was
finally accredited. By this
time, I was already posted to
Washington and almost every
day during that trying period,
Sash and I spoke on the
.phone and I assured him that
everything would work out
all right. Everything did turn
out all right and Sash proved
to be a very resourceful, suc-
cessful and much admired
diplomat in Venezuela.

As an aside, I must state
that he always held very great

-President comments on

freeing of Cuban exile
(GINA)The freeing of Cuban exile Luis Posada Carriles
charged with masterminding the 1976 bombing of the
Cubana airliner that killed 73 people including more than
10 Guyanese, has evoked much criticism against the United
States of America.
President Bhartra Jagedeo has commented on the freeing of
the Cuban exile.
"I have not been following the issue closely but you
can't have double standards on terrorism as well as drug
trafficking. People should live up to the lectures that they
give to other parts of the world," he said.
U.S. Judge Kathleen Cardone granted Carriles bail pending
trial in Texas for immigration charges.
Posada Carriles, 77, a former agent for the Central Intelli-
gence Agency (CIA), is seeking political asylum in the U.S. Ven-
ezuela said the U.S. would be guilty of double standards if it
sheltered a man accused of terrorism while claiming to fight a
war on terror.
On October 6, 1976, Flight CU-455 was scheduled to fly
the following route: Guyana to Trinidad, Trinidad to Barba-
dos, Barbados to Kingston, Jamaica, and finally Kingston to
Havana, Cuba.
It was reported that nine minutes after take off from
Barbados' Seawell Airport, a bomb located in the aircraft's
rear lavatories exploded. All 48 passengers and 25 crew
aboard the plane died.



Members of the National Commission on Law and Order (NCLO) headed by Minister
of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee began a public consultation exercise on the
purpose and work of the commission. Target groups include Chambers of
Commerce, faith-based organizations; community policing groups, youth and

The Guyana Press Association (GPA) is "deeply saddened" at
the death of Stabroek News journalist Angela Osborne. who
died after a brief illness yesterday.
"Her death comes at a time \when the Gu\anese media frater-
nit\ is in dire need of more \ young and dedicated persons." the GPA
said in a statement.
She was hospitalized at the St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital and
died on a medi-vac flight to Trinidad for advanced treatment.
During her years in the media, the GPA said. Osborne made
invaluable contributions in the preservation and recording of
Guyana's printed history while working in the library at Stabroek
She later joined the Editorial Department where she worked tire-
lessly in contributing to the hard-news and feature content of the
daily and Sunday editions of the newspaper.
Ms. Osborne. who was an executive member of both
the Bishops' High School Old Students Association and the Stabroek
News Cooperative Credit Union Societ\. w as a strong advocate of
a vibrant GPA.
She leaves to mourn two children, siblings and parents.

Eight charged ...
From pae 3
fraudulent evasion of import duties contrary to section 218 (c)
of the Customs Act, Chapter 82:01: and dealing with goods
with intent to defraud the Revenue of Duties thereon contrary
to section 218 (d) of the Customs Act. Chapter 82:01. The ma-
Sjority of charges were served sometime between yesterday and
Friday last.
The eight are scheduled for a court date with GRA Prosecutor,
Mr. Gino Persaud, fixed for the Providence Magistrate's Court on
Friday, April 27. Sahadeo has additionally been charged with hir-
ing a person to assist in the evasion of the Customs Law contrary
to section 204 (3) of the Customs Act, 82:01. He will have to an-
swer to that charge on Thursday, April 26 at the Georgetown
Magistrate's Court. Sahadeo is reportedly the uncle of both Ramdin
and Bhagwandin. It is unclear, so far, the role played by Chandra
owner of Mark Chandra's Auto Sales and M's Ville Apartments
but this is expected to come out as the case proceeds.
According to sources, three of the accused are believed to be
the key people involved, having provided the financing and
organisation of the shipment. Also, the Valentine's Day bust does
not appear to have been the first such shipment moved by the M.V.
Lady Kimberly from St. Maarten to Guyana; it is possible, according
to sources, that at least one such voyage was made late last year.
The ownership of the M.V. Lady Kimberly had also come un-
der the spotlight. The vessel was originally reported as being reg-
istered to businessman, Maurice Gopie, but Gopie has provided
evidence that it was sold to Sahadeo; Reginald
Baichand, was originally listed on the Agreement of Sale for the
trawler but had backed out of the deal at the last minute.
In the most recent development in the case, prior to the
charging of the eight men, a GRA notice was posted in last
Sunday's issue of this paper. One GRA insider explained that
the sale of the seized goods will not in anyway affect the
agency's ability to successfully prosecute the case. According
to the source,-the Customs Act provides for the sale of law-
fully seized goods after thirty days have expired without any-
one coming to claim the goods.

Pursuant to Rule 6 (1) of the Rules of the Guyana Bar
Association, the Annual General Meeting of the Guyana
Bar Association will be held on Friday the 25'" day of May,

Two women brutally attacked by men

... as the domestic violence continues

by Shirley Thomas

A 33-year-old Corentyne
mother of four brutally
chopped about her body by
her reputed husbarid on Fri-
day night is now in a critical
state at the Georgetown Pub-
lic Hospital.
Bonita Leitch of Tain
Settlement, Corentyne, whose
left arm was severed above the
elbow also suffered trauma to
the head, chops to the left leg
and a broken right leg. The
woman who is being fed intra-
veinously is confined to bed and
unable to do anything for her-
Leitch, once married and
now separated from her hus-
band, told the Sunday Chronicle
that she shares the home' her
mother built for her at Tain
with her four young sons and
reputed husband. She recalls
that on Friday evening the
children's father came to the
house to visit them, and her re-
puted husband became an-

After the children's father
had left the home, she said, her
reputed husband started a con-
frontation with her, which she
saw was heading for violence.
Leitch said that around 22:00h
she left the home in the com-
pany of her sister-in-law and
was heading to a shop to buy
'food' when the he ran after her.
She said she was already on the
road when he overpowered her
and whisked out a cutlass and
started hacking away on her.
The woman recalled that the in-
cident took place in the full view
off her sons and neighbours

saulted by a man she said was
previously her companion.
She is now a patient at the

She sustained three gaping

other injuries to her limbs.

to court in relation to battery.
The beleaguered woman
said that on Thursday afternoon
shortly after 16:00h, she was at
the Parika Market where she
had gone to deliver some win-

stall holder. She said that while
waiting to collect her money for
the curtains, she saw her former

Don't leave

children at

home alone

(Jamaica Gleaner) An appeal to parents to be mindful of
the safety of their children has again come from
Children's Advocate, Mary Clarke.
On Tuesday, one-year-old Vanessa Gayle was burnt to death
in a house fire at McKenley Crescent in Olympic Gardens,
Kingston 11. Four days before, two toddlers perished in a fire
on Friday night in Olympic Gardens, Kingston 11. Four days
before, two toddlers perished in a fire on Friday night after their
17-year-old mother left them alone on Spanish Town Road.
Ms. Clarke said parents should refrain from leaving their
children at home unattended andunsupervised.
"We have to ask parents to be more careful with open
flame, such as candles, stoves and lit insect repellents," she said.
Since the start of the year, five children have been burnt to
death in fire. Twenty were killed in 2006.
Statistics show that between 1997 and 2002 there were 146
deaths caused by fire with 52 of that number being children.
Parents should be reminded, said Ms. Clarke, that accord-
ing to the Child Care and Protection Act, they have the pri-
mary responsible for the safety of their children.
"They will be held accountable if it can be proved that they
were negligent," she added.
"Parents need to realise that there is a cost when chil-
dren perish; that they lose them, plus they will be pun-
ished," Ms. Clarke said.

Efficiency of drainage

system at Rosignol

The Rosignol /Zee Lust Neigh-
borhood Democratic Council
(NDC) in Region 5 (Mahaica/
Berbice) has identified effi-
ciency of the residential drain-
age system in and around
Rosignol as a priority for its
work programme over the next
few months.
Chairman of the West
Berbice NDC Mr Beerkarran
Singh said that the Council in-
tends to spend some $6M on
this aspect of its 2007 plans for
the village, often described as
having the potential for becom-
ing a secondary town.
The programme includes
the routine maintenance of
kokers connected to residential
main drains and community.
D&I workers are to be utilized
to clean the smaller interlock-
ing drains within.
Beerkarran identified repairs
and maintenance of streets in
the village and construction of
bridges as other aspects of what
the Council intends to accom-
plish this year.
Two bridges are to be con-
structed, one at Cotton Tree and

aim of allowing children access to
schools without having to traverse

Beerkarran said that
the NDC has intentions of do-
ing much more for Rosignol and
its environs but was being hin-
dered by the low levels of
payments of rates and taxes.
"The arrears rates for 2006
amount to approximately $8M.
If we can get this money along
with payments we should re-
ceive for 2007. we can do a lot
more to improve the quality of
the environment and the life of
residents." he said.
He also identified
underutilization of the multi
million dollar market at
Rosignol as another major
problem for the NDC.
The market,built in the late
1990s was expanded by Basic
Needs Trust Funds (BNTF) and
the Ministry of Housing in
June last year, but vendors have
resisted efforts to get them to
occupy the market fully, claim-
ing that it was not a suitable site

a priority
for \ending on weekdays,
They occupy the market on
Saturday only. preferring to
utilize another area within
Rosignol during weekdays in
very insanitary and unhygienic
conditions. Beerkarran said.
Beerkarran said that his

vendors to make use of the new

The disposal of solid waste
is another major challenge for
the Rosignol/Zee Lust Council.
He said that there have been
instances of people dumping
garbage overnight in some areas
in Rosignol.
The Council has a tractor
and trailer and a backhoe
which it uses to clean up as
best it could. The Council
hopes to regularize garbage
disposal with the identifica-
tion of a dump site within the
NDC this year.

UNDERUTILISED: The Rosignol market expanded by 20,000 feet last year;empty six days
each week.

cidents of alleged unlawful kill-
ings by U.S. forces in Iraq.
Video footage
Maj Gen Eldon Bargewell's
report is an indictment of ac-
tions throughout the whole
chain of command, from the
general in charge to the men who
carried out the killings on No-
vember, 19. 2005.
"All levels of command
tended to view civilian casual-
ties, even in significant numbers,
as routine and as the natural and
intended result of insurgent tac-
tics," the U.S. newspaper
quotes him as saying.
Gen Bargewell said state-
ments taken from those in-
volved suggested the marines
thought "Iraqi civilian lives are
not as important as U.S. lives,
their deaths are just the cost Of
doing business, and that the ma-
rines need to get 'the job done'
no matter what it takes".
The U.S. military's initial
statement on Haditha said that
a marine and 15 civilians had
been killed in a roadside bomb.
A subsequent firefight had left
eight insurgents dead, it said.
However, a local journalist
took video footage showing nimen,
women and children shot in
their homes. Locals said the ma-
rines had gone on a rampage.;
The U.S. military in'i gaied
investigations and confirmed

Sin Artst

that 24 Iraqi civilians had died.
none of them killed by a road-
side bomb.
Three marines have since
been charged with unpremedi-
tated murder and four with at-
tempting to cover up the inci-
Gen Bargewell is quoted as
saying officers had tried to pro-
tect themselves and their troops
by wilfully ignoring reports of
civilian deaths.
There was no interest .in in-
vestigating reports of a massa-
cre, although there was also no
specific cover-up, he is reported
to have said.
The general's report, filed in
June last year, does not address
the specifics of the killings,
which are the subject of the
criminal case, rather it tackles
the command structure and in-
vestigation procedure.
Gen Bargewell found that
the marines had not identified
targets properly. the Washington
Post says.
The report also says the
marines' story was passed up
the chain of command and at all
levels signs that the incident was
significant were ignored.
A military judge has yet
to decide if there is enough
evidence against the seven
accused marines to convene a
court martial.


Our company, on a regular basis, needs to upgrade

our signs throughout the country,

Would sign artists kindly supply information about

their organization and a list of large signs they have

done within the past two years,.

(Jamaica Gleaner) -The Electoral Commission is close to
preparing a report for submission to'Parliament on pro-
posals for legislation addressing the long-debated issues
related to the funding of political parties and election cam-
Danville Walker, director of elections and commissioner of
the Electoral Commission, told The, Gleaner Friday that the.
commission has received all submissions on the matter and was
now rpyiewing the proposals..
After the report is sent to Parliament, the legislature will
give instructions for legislation to be drafted to, for the first
time in the nation's history, regulate political party financing.
Submissions being reviewed
The governing People's National Party (PNP) made its sub-
mission to the commission last week."We have now received
all of the submissions and they are now being reviewed with
the hope of producing a report very quickly," Mr. Walker told
The Gleaner friday.
However, the director df elections stressed that the pro-
posed bill on campaign financing, a longstanding source of con-
cern within the political arena, would not be ready in- time for
national polls this year.
"I don't think we should proceed on the matter with our
eyes on the election," Mr. Walker said.
Campaign financing
He noted that the next general election is constitutionally
due by October 2007 "and if campaign financing is to be effec-
tive it cannot cover a six-month period".
Meanwhile, in the latest indication that the calling of.the
next general election is imminent, the PNP's National Execu-
tive Council (NEC) will be meeting at the Ebony Park HEART'
Academy in Clarendon where general secretary Donald Buchanan
will tomorrow report on the party's organisational and elec-
toral readiness. The PNP's Campaign Director Dr. Paul,
Robertson is also scheduled to update the NEC on campaign
matters, while party president and.Prime Minister Portia
Simpson Miller will give the main address.
Mr. Walker maintained yesterday that the work now being
undertaken on party financing was for the future and could not
be implemented in time for the upcoming election.
Selected.member of the Electoral Commission and general
secretary of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP), Karl Samuda, sup-
ported the view that legislation could not be enacted in time
for the election.
"It is not something that we can treat lightly, it's not some-
thing that should be rushed into, it is something that requires
serious consideration and intense study," Mr. Samuda argued.
The JLP general iery sai4 i.lvas cdtipal k
ing legislation on campaign financing, provisions should be made
for sanctions to be imposed on parties that breached the regu-
lations and submit erroneous information.
Earlier this week, another critical element related to elec-
toral reform was also brought to Parliament when legislation
was tabled to increase the number of constituencies from 60 to
The increase in the number of constituencies to an odd num-
ber would prevent any possibility of a tie in ftiture elections.
This legislation, however, is also not expected to be
implemented in time for the next general election

rounder Andrexw Hall told

Hall said the South Africans
had remained focused on the
fact that they needed to beat
England to reach the semi-finals.
"We knew we could win
what amounted to a quarter-fi-
nal." Hall said. "In the World
Cup you grow quickly if you

go through a few tough times."
Hall starred against England
by taking five for 18 his
maiden five-wicket haul in his

Boro hold Man United to throw open title race

at Old Trafford.

but still managed to regain
the vacant Commonwealth

to stop his holding and this was
the reason why it was such an

Watson justifies

his captain's faith

By John Mehaffey

ST GEORGE'S, Grenada
(Reuters) Shane Watson
justified the faith of captain
Ricky Ponting on Friday with
an innings which shattered
New Zealand's hopes of con-
taining the world champions
in their final World Cup Su-
per Eight match.
Returning to the side after
yet another injury break,
Watson gave as good an exhibi-
tion of clean hitting as anything
seen in the tournament so far.
Sweeping the ball off his
legs and hitting the ball power-
fully on the drive he struck four
fours and four sixes in his 65
not out from 32 balls.
Thanks to the powerful
all-rounder's efforts, Austra-
lia added 66 in the final five
overs to reach an imposing
348 for six.
With the ball, Watson
bowled James Franklin for
six in his first over and fin-
ished with one for 20 from his
five overs as the Kiwis col-
lapsed to 133 all out.
Watson missed the 2003
World Cup with a back injury
and the last Ashes series with a
hamstring complaint. He then
strained a calf muscle against
Bangladesh and did not play in
Australia's last three games.
On Friday, Watson showed
why he is so important to the
balance of the team with bat,

ball and in the field.
"Shane Watson is a very.
\,very good and very. very tal-
ented cricketer, someone that
works extremely hard at his
game." Ponting, whose side have
won all nine of their matches at
the tournament, told a post-
match news conference.
"He hasn't had a great
run with injuries but if you
look at his form in the one-
day team over the last couple
of years he has hardly put a
foot wrong.
"He's opened the batting
and his bowling in the one-day
game over the last couple of
years has been great.
"The way he struck the ball
today was very pleasing for ev-
Watson's assault followed
66 by Ponting and 103 from
100 balls from opener and
man-of-the-match Matthew
Hayden, his third century of
the tournament.
"I think we've worked very
hard throughout this summer in
our one-day game and all ele-
ments of our game," Hayden
"So 1 guess it's no surprise
we're here at the World Cup at
the height, of our game having-
played a lot of cricket.

that there is another serious dis-
pute looming between the West

The players want extra

promise will be Iound.
"I'll be having discus-
sions with the West Indies

board to see if there are
any concerns," David
Collier, the ECB's chief
executive, told PA. "We're
not aware of any serious

been a major, major issue I'm
sure we would have been
alerted. At the moment we're
confident we'll be able to stage

West Indies side.
I can't say where it will end
up in terms of their discussions
but it would be almost unthink-
able if their side wouldn't play
the series."
Collier went on to admit
that the ECB had a contingency
plan drawn up in case the tour
was'scrapped, but would not
reveal any details. "This is the
first time it's come up, but
we've got some pretty good
contacts around the world if we
needed them."
The relationship between
the WICB and WIPA has been
increasingly fractious, and

mnient Thursday evening after
West Indies beat Bangladesh in
their Cricket World Cup (CWC)
2007 Super-8 match in Barba-
dos that he would retire from all
forms of international cricket af-
ter their last World Cup match
against England yesterday.
But Boynes was startled by
the announcement and con-
tacted Lara about re-evaluating
his position on the matter.
"I spoke with Brian a
short while ago, and I have
asked Brian to reconsider,"
Boy nes told reporters Friday.

He said the GFF would as-

necessary requirements to stage
three competitions each Un-

supplying the medals and tro-

The football boss challenged
the associations to match that
by finding funding for three
other competitions.

Barbados, an increase from
eight to in excess of 21.

Brian Lara
"1 have told Brian that
when he comes to Trinidad and
Tobago we will sit down and
we will talk." Boynes added.
Lara declared Thursday
evening that he had given "ex-
tensive consideration" to the
matter and decided to quit.
The batting \x world record-
holder had already\ announced he

was retiring from One-day
Internationals at the end of the
World Cup to concentrate on
prolonging his Test career, so his
decision to quit altogether came
as a surprise.
Boynes thinks his deci-
sion is premature as he be-
lieves the 37-year-old left-
hander has more to offer to
West Indies cricket.
"I know he is one man, he
has tried his best and he has a
role to play in the development
of cricket. not only for Trinidad
and Tobago but he has a role to
play in the development of
cricket for West Indies. and lie
still has a role to play in this
present team," Boynes stated.
Suggesting that hlie be-
lieved Lara's decision was
prompted by pressure due to

Lara in emotional mood after his final ODI match

WEST Indies captain Brian
Lara was in emotional

mood after defeat by En-
gland in his final interna-


tional match.
England reached their target
of 301 with one ball remaining
in a dramatic end to one of the
great careers.
Lara told the crowd: "I've
had a tremendous time playing
for the West Indies. All I ask is.
did I entertain? If I entertained
you. I'm happy.
"Things didn't quite
work out today as planned,
but maybe it was a fitting
way to end my career -
runs galore."


Lara refused to blame
Marlon Samuels for the call
which led to his run-out for just
18S in his final innings.
He said: "These things
happen. As any schoolboy
knows, if the ball goes behind
you, you run. I'm ready to
move on.
"I'm really proud of the
West Indies team and the fight
we showed.
"Unfortunately we didn't
get home today, but we showed
great spirit throughout."

Lara said that his 277
against Australia at Sydney
in 1993. his world record
Test innings of 375 and 400
and winning the 2004 ICC
Champions Trophy were
his proudest moments.
But he admitted that the
lack of success for the West
Indies during much of his career
remained a major disappoint-
He said: "When I was first
playing cricket the West Indies
were at the top in world cricket,

and I always wanted us to sta\
at the top.
"But there was a decline.
and we haven't managed to
stop that over the last 10 or
12 years, and that's the most
disappointing thing. I'm a
team player and I want to see
this West Indies team get
back to the top.
"I want to thank everyone
for all their support over the
years I've enjoyed every
single minute of it." (BBC

'Arrive sufficiently early so people are sober enough to remem-

avoid her. And, lastly, remember Cinderella's exit: she was the first

Judi James says:
'I once watched an actress dazzle every guy in the room by
refusing to be introduced to them by name. She claimed she could
guess it with just three questions: their age, what their parents did
and where they grew up. She cannily got each guy's full attention

World Book and Copyright Day 2007

by Petamber Persaud

IT would appear that
Georgetown can stake a claim
as World Book Capital City.
Already a number of
Guyanese books were launched
in Georgetown and a greater
number of titles published,
howbeit, outside of the capital
Books already launched for
2007 were "The Guyana An-
nual" edited by Petamber
Persaud, "Cricket at Bourda -
Sportsmen and Sportsmanship
- a compilation of articles by the
late Pryor Jonas, edited by Joyce
Jonas. All of these titles were
printed and published locally.
Other titles already pub-
lished for the year 2007 include
"The Undiminished Link" by
Victor Waldron, "A Dream De-
ferred" by Stephen Spenser,
"The People's Progressive Party
of Guyana 1950-1992: An Oral
History" compiled and edited

Short Stories from Guyana" ed-
ited by Petamber Persaud, pub-
lished by Dido Press, UK.
Apart from the above men-
tioned book related deeds, there
were other such activities that
were given little or no attention
by the media (I make no apol-
ogy if it appears self-serving
when publicising literary
projects; in fact, I feel blessed
to have the means and to make
optimum use of them for the
purpose of promoting literacy
and enhancing our literature).
Two cases instantly come
to mind were the sixth Annual
Book Fair staged by the
Guyana Book Foundation and
Partners and "The Journey", an
evening of literature, part VIII.
The first activity was held
on March 14 & 15. 2007 in
Georgetown and the other was
staged at the National Art Gal-
lery, Castellani House, on April
4 2007.
The World Book Capital

America can boast of a number
of winners of the Nobel Prize
for Literature including Gabriela
Mistral and Pablo Neruda.
World Book Capital City
was instituted by the United
Nations Educational, Scien-
tific and Cultural
Organisation (UNESCO) in
2001 as another innovation to
its excellent project World
Book and Copyright 'Day

Intellectual poverty ...

From page IV
intellectual influences as
The purpose of these ref-
erences to past decades before
the 21st century is not to
keep living in the past, but to
simply prove how certain pro-
gressive habits and attitudes
emerged from a popular local
exposure to intelligent films,
literature, pop and instru-
mental music.
If one does not realise or
understand how such cultural
and intellectual habits influence
the high social qualities of a so-
ciety and nation's daily life, one
can easily lose such qualities or
have them taken away, while
foolishly believing they merely
belong to some unreal era called
'the past'.
But simply repeating the
various disturbing social events

which resulted in the decline of
intellectual standards in
Guyanese society will not rem-
edy the situation.
Nevertheless for the ben-
efit of a new generation who
seem unaware that compari-
sons can be made between the
intellectual quality of life in
Guyana today, with Guyana
in previous decades, we
should state one basic fact:
Intellectual poverty was set in
motion after the devastating
riots, arson and political/so-
cial conflict of 1962, after
which, among the thousands
who lined up around the cor-
ner at the Brickdam Police
Station for passports, were
numerous innovative, knowl-
edgeable owners, managers,
and workers of cinemas, ra-
dio stations, the press, book-
stores, etc., whose valuable
intellectual guidance and in-

put was disrupted and
crippled by a disturbing and
dangerous social atmosphere
in the nation.
When looking for reasons
behind the gradual increase of
intellectual poverty in
Guyanese society today, we
must recognize that the average
citizen no longer receives the
daily influence of high quality
films, literature, and musical
quality they received decades
What sort of people would
be nurtured without such influ-
ences? A recent report from
North American ghettoes stated
that violence-prone youths re-
garded reading, seeing intelligent
films, and enjoying placid pleas-
ant music, as something for
"white people" only.
Imagine if such an attitude
was imitated locally. We have
proof of the good effect of in-

But even if such wayward

they do. What kind of effect?
What good does such intellectu-

items do for you?
Yet people are free to pay
attention to whatever they
wish. and to legislate their
choices would be dictatorial.
Guyanese have to decide for
themselves that seeing better
films, reading better litera-
ture, listening to better mu-
sic, can only benefit their
lives. Even more important is
the bad effect such poor cul-
tural items have on local pro-
fessionals on TV channels,
writers, musicians, artists,
etc, who have been influenced
by the same intellectual pov-

It is also interesting that

a agc v AX

IN 1976, Justice Frank Vieira
struck out a slander action for
damages, brought by Athiel
Beresford Clarke, General
foreman of the House Service
Department of the Mayor &
City Council against subordi-
nate employee Ayube Khan
on the grounds that the


pleadings did not disclose a
cause of action.
Clarke had claimed the sum
of $10, 000.00 for slanderous
words used by Khan against him
in the presence and hearing of
other employees.
Justice Vieira found among
other things that the words used
about "whore", "whore up" and
"stink" could not have affected
the plaintiff's professional life.
In his summons, Clarke had
contended that the slanderous
statements used by the Defen-
dant, a Supervisor of the City
Council, was understood to
mean that the plaintiff had been
guilty of unchastity and was of
a loose and immoral character
and habitually committed adul-
However, when the matter
came up for hearing before Judge
Vieira, Mr. Neville Bissember
for the defendant, raised a pre-
liminary objection that unless
there is a plea of special dam-
age there is no cause of action
and he submitted that the
pleadings did not disclose any
special damages whatsoever.
Mr. Bissember argued that

the Court could not grant an
application for an amendment to
include special damages and. in
support t hereof, he cited Jones
-v- Jones (1916) A.C. 481.
Counsel for the Plaintiff.
Mr. Alvin Holder, in reply, sub-
mitted that if Mr. Bissember felt
that the pleadings did not dis-

close a cause of action, then the
proper course he should have
adopted was to have made an
application in Chambers by
way of summons to have the
writ struck out.
Holder, had also argued
that paragraphs 1-4 of the
statement of claim clearly
showed that a work situation
existed between the plaintiff
and the defendant as general
foreman and supervisor re-
spectively in the same depart-
ment of the Mayor and City
Council of Georgetown in-
volving words which
amounted to an allegation of
immorality against the plain-
tiff in his calling or office or
profession and he contended
that such a situation had al-
ways been actionable without
proof of any special damage.
In his judgment, Justice
Vieira explained, "Unlike libel
which is actionable per se, slan-
der, is only actionable upon
proof of actual damage subject
to four exceptions at common
law, two of which are now gov-
erned by statute, viz:-
an imputation of a

crime punishable by imprison-
ment or corporal punishment -
Hellwig -v- Mitchell (1910) 1
an imputation of
communicable disease which
gives rise to moral condemnation
of loathing Bloodworthy -v-
Gray (1.844) 7 M & G 334:

an allegation of un-
chastity against any woman or
girl.. This is now governed by
the Slander of Women Act,
1891, which has been adopted
in this country and is set out
succinctly in sec. 6 of the Defa-
mation Act, No. 17 of 1959
(now Cap. 6:03) of the Laws of
Guyana which is based upon
the English Defamation Act,
a slander in respect of
an office, profession, trade, call-
ing or business. This is the ex-
ception with which we are di-
rectly concerned in this action.
Going on, Justice Vieira
added, "At common law this
fourth exception was not ac-
tionable per se unless two
conditions were satisfied,
(a) it was calculated to
disparage the plaintiff in his of-
fice, etc.,
(b) it was spoken in rela-
tion to his office, etc. This sec-
ond requirement is no longer
necessary in view of sec. 2 of
the Defamation Act, 1952,
which provides as follows.
In an action for slander in

-General foreman lost slander

respect of words calculated to
disparage the plaintiff in any
office, profession, calling, trade
or business held or carried on
by him at the time of the pub-
lication, it shall not be neces-
sary to allege or prove special
damage, whether or not the
words are spoken of the plain-
tiff in the way of his office,
profession, calling trade or
Justice Vieira pointed out
that Sec. 4 of Caps. 6:03 is in
identical terms with sec. 2
and, as Professor Street points
out in his book on Torts, 4th
Edition (1968) at p. 192, the

effect of sec. 2 of the 1952 Act
was to nullify the decision of
the House of Lords in Jones
-v- Jones, previously men-
tioned, upon which great re-
liance was placed by Mr.
According to the Judge, in
that case, their Lordships held
that an allegation that a head-
master had committed adultery
with a school teacher did not re-
late to his conduct in his pro-
fession and regardless of its
prejudicial effects on his em-
ployment, was not therefore
:.within the exception at common

Justice Vieira explained
that the old common law po-
sitioh in relation to slander
affecting official, profes-
sional or business reputation
was that where the defama-
tory words are spoken of the
plaintiff in the way of his of-
fice, calling, profession, trade
or business and disparages
him therein, they will be ac-
tionable. But, as that ac-
knowledged expert on the
complex and rather artificial
law of defamation, Richard

Husain paints Abhiash

wedding for gift
Among the many firsts that the wedding of the year has spawned, here's one wedding gift
that could make for uncomfortable drawing conversation for Abhishek and Aishwarya.
The quirky, octogenarian artist MF Hussain has .painted his interpretation of the wedding scene
on canvas as a gift to the couple.
The painting, which is already making international headlines, portrays Aishwarya the bride
leaving for groom Abhishek's house. A moment of farewell, with a famous couplet Kundanlal
Sehgal inscribed on it.
Aishwarya.and Abhishek are seated on the traditional wedding horse. As a twist to the tale,
there is also a heartbroken suitor left in the wake of the happy newly weds, who bears a striking
resemblance to Aishwarya's ex-boyfriend and actor Salman Khan.
The painting is captioned, Babul moral naihar chhoota jaye ( a bride has to leave her father's
house after marriage). The beauty of Husain's lines is very much present in this painting as his
lines speaks a lot about the theme.
The red background is intelligently used to depict the happy days ahead for Abhiash.
Red colour is always used in
India on auspicious occa-
sions. Salman is crying and
begging in the white back-
ground. White colour is
used to depict the sadness as
well as peace. This is a mes-
sage to Salman that forget
your lost love and live in
peace and let her live in
Se 7 s peace. This is the life which
is full of meetings and part-
ings. Hussain has said,
"Salman represents crore's
of those who are heartbro-
ken after Ash's marriage."
Hussain has a wish to gift
-this painting to Bachchan's
personally in near future.
The artist has been quoted as saying that he symbolises millions of heartbroken Indians.
Citing 6s one of the biggest event in Bollywood, Husain recalled the
time when Dr Harivanshral Bachchan introduced him to Amitabh Bachchan in Delhi.

O'Sullivan, Q.C. pointed out in his monograph. The law of Defamation' at p. 24 -
'It was necessary to allege and prove that they were spoken in relation to his office or calling, i.e.,
that there was some connection between the subject-matter of the slander and the office of calling".
Accordingly, the judge said, the test to be applied here is: "Are the words complained of,
amounting to an imputation of immorality, 'likely or reasonably likely to lower or belittle or
bring discredit upon' the plaintiff in his job as a general foreman in the House Service De-
partment of the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown?
"If the answer is 'yes', then they are actionable per se, and no special damage need be pleaded and
."If, however, the answer is 'No', then the statement of claim must be struck out (and not
dismissed, I feel, as the objection is a miere preliminary one and no question about the merits
of the cause arises) as disclosing no proper cause, of action, unless the Court, in the exercise of
its undoubted discretion grants an amendment to permit the plaintiff to plead 'special dam-
age' on the payment of costs, in proper cases.
Justice Vieira added, "Let us now analyse the words complained of "You are a whore's pup
and you yourself are a whore and you are stink.
"(a) Whore's pup this clearly means that the plaintiff is the offspring of a prostitute, who is a
female who hires her body indiscriminately for sexual intercourse, which gives rise to the not unrea-
sonable inference that the plaintiff might not really know who his true father is;
(b) Plaintiff himself is a whore this can only possibly mean that he is a male prostitute, i.e., a
male person who sells his body, either as the giver or the receiver, for the purpose of intercourse per
anum with another male person; (c) Plaintiff stinks this means that his body gives off an offensive
odour which may be due either to a neglected illness or disease or to simple want of personal cleanli-
"It is trite law that where the words are actionable only by reason of the damage
caused by the, special damage must be alleged and proved and such special damage
must be the natural and probable consequence"of the slander Chamberlain -v- Boyd
(1883) 11 QBD 407."
Justice Vieira's judgment went on to say, "If the plaintiff's mother is in fact a 'whore', then he
cannot really be responsible for-the circumstances of his birth. Surely the sin is that of the mother and
not that of the child; this is good Christian thinking.
If he himself is a homosexual and a male prostitute to boot, what has that got to do with his job of
general foreman and we must remember that we are living in a very permissive age where homosexual-
ity in private between consenting males is no longer a crime in many of the developed nations.
"The same considerations apply as to whether he has an offensive body odour. The 'smell' may
make contact with him distasteful and embarrassing but how does that basically affect his job as a
general foreman?
Justice Vieira added that his licentiousness or sexual promiscuity, if true, may be repre-
hensible morally but, again, asked what that has got to do with his job as a general foreman
and how does that basically affect him in that particular job.

young men and women aged 18-30 that fosters leadership, respon-
sible citizenship, encourages high ethical standards in business and
promotes international understanding and peace.
The club's objectives are to foster the development of leadership and
professional skills, the recognition of the dignity and value of all useful
occupations as opportunities to serve and more importantly the develop-
ment of knowledge and understanding of the needs. problems and oppor-
tunities in the community and worldwide.
Chartered fourteen (15) years ago the Rotaract Club of
Georgetown Central has undertaken several projects in a variety of
areas, namely literacy, scholarships to study. HIV/AIDS education
and support, medical outreaches. career guidance seminars, voca-
tional studies donations to the needy, the disabled.
More recently, it has facilitated the placement of several
picnic-style benches in the Botanical Gardens and a of wheel
chair ramps at the Georgetown Magistrates Courts and Com-
modes for inmates of the Palms.
All of these projects have been recognized locally and internationally.
Since the organization is voluntary and service oriented all funds are raised
by hosting parties, cake sales, fun fairs and such like.
The '01 Skool' party promises to be very exciting not only for
the club. but also more importantly for the patrons as the party as
it promises it take the patrons back to the "01 Skool" by provid-
ing an abundance of vintage vibes courtesy of a Sonic Boom. The
party's major sponsor thus far is Ansa McAl Trading.

AGRICULTURE Minister Mr. Robert Persaud presents
lambs to a participant at Airy Hall

Agriculture Minister Mr. Robert Persaud last Monday handed
over several head of sheep and addressed two ceremonies re-
lated to projects funded by the Canadian International Devel-
opment Agency (CIDA) in Essequibo..
He was at the time speaking to the Airy Hall Women's Devel-
opment Group at Airy Hall on the Essequibo Coast and to the
Wakenaam Schools' Association on the island of Wakenaam in the
Essequibo River.
Both events involved the transferring of lambs to new beneficia-
ries under separate projects funded by CIDA under the Building Com-
munity Capacity Project Phase 11 and executed by CHF partners in
rural development.
Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana Mr. Charles Court,
CHF Country Director Ms. Jean Lowry, Dr. Oudho Homenauth of
the National Agriculture Research Institute, Chairman of Region Two
Mr. Ally Baksh and Chairman of Region Three Mr. Julius Faerber
were among those addressing the ceremonies.
Minister Persaud described the livestock project being undertaken
by the Airy Hall Group, with the assistance of CHF, as particularly
valuable, as it is taking place in an environment in which rice, the
mainstay of the economy there, is affected by reduced market prices.
The women here have come up with a project to diversify, to
better their condition and they have gone to the area of sheep-rear-
ing," Mr. Persaud said.
The Minister said the administration has included livestock in
its strategic development plan, including cattle, sheep, goats and
He observed that some 90 per cent of meat and meat products
consumed in Caricom states were imported from outside of the Car-
ibbean, and so there was a ready market for products from livestock-
rearing in Guyana.
Unlike other Caricom states, Mr. Persaud continued, Guyana was
possessed of an important asset for the livestock industry- pas-
The matter of adequate pasturage for livestock is being looked
at, Mr. Persaud disclosed, and to this end he has already held talks
with the officials of the region to identify pastures for livestock.
It is because the Group's project is so much in line with
the national development plan that the Agriculture Ministry is
working closely with the Airy Hall women, and with CHF, to
assist in its success.
He advised that the women do all they could to expand the
project, developing their own herds, taking advantage of the local
market, with mutton being sold in Geoergetown for as much as $700
per pound.
The Ministry is -revamping its extension services, as these will
become much more important when livestock-rearing really gets go-
Mr. Persaud spoke of a Ministry programme currently being
implemented which will equip members of groups involved in live-
stock rearing, like that in Airy Hall and 'i....Lri..un.
with knowledge and skills to treat minor livestock ailments.
The Ministry is also producing a Tech-Pack comprising
manuals suited to every crop and livestock activity. These packs
will be ready for distribution in about two weeks, and will pro-
vide information on what should be done when animals are af-
fected by minor ailments. Later the manuals will be put on com-
pact discs and on the Ministry's website making them avail-
able to many groups with computer access.
Minister Persaud said that a Guyana Lixestock Development
Board is soon to be put in place. This entity will pull together live-
stock initiatives taking place all over the country. harnessing all re-
sources and interacting \\ with players in the sector. Legislation for set-
ting up the Bo:ard is already being looked at.

Mr. Persaud said that he is sure the Canadian Government and
people have recognized the positive results coming out of their as-
sistance, and he hopes this would encourage them to continue work-
ing with the Guyana Government and people in other areas.
In his remarks, Canadian High Commissioner Charles Court ob-
served that Canada has been involved in development in Guyana for
many years, even before independence, and there have been many
successes as well as challenges.
"But from what we have heard today and what we can see, this
has definitely been a success,"he said.
"We have an obligation, all of us, to help each other, and that is
why Canada, over the years, has had a very extensive development
programme; and it will continue in Guyana certainly for as far into
the'future as any of us can see," the High Commissioner said.
,This assistance programme will focus more and more on
helping communities such as Airy Hall to build their organiza-
tions and to help raise themselves to a level of prosperity with
which they are comfortable.
Mr. Court referred to a recent Easter Concert at the High Com-
mission at which the aria "Ev'ry Valley Shall Be Exalted" from
Handel's Messiah was performed, and he compared this with the
livestock programmes, saying" That's what this is really all about,

The important thing is to create prosperity, to take responsibil-
ity, and this is what the Group has been doing.

Each year, since 1970, on 22 April5 a busy
world sets aside some time to partici
pate in the annual Earth Day obser
vances when we reflect on the state of
an endangered Planet Earth. This year, as we take
the time to participate in the 37th such obser-
vance, we will do well to deliberate on current is-
sues, policies and practices, pertinent to the pres-
ervation and conservation of the Planet for at no
time in the history of human kind has the welfare
of the Planet and indeed the existence of all liv-
ing kind been more threatened.
This year, rather inescapably, the local theme of Earth Day, Understanding the Causes and Consequences of Cli-
mate Change. This is particularly pertinent given the recent
release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
[IPCC] 2007 Situation Report which found that many of the
uncertainties about the impacts of climate change have been
resolved. The Report affirms that the information, now avail-
able, is clinically precise and confirms that the poorest of the
poor, like Guyana and Guyanese, will experience the most
severe impacts of climate change.
The report also confirmed that a rise in temperature lev-
els has put about one-third of all species at the risk of ex-
tinction. The report warned that adaptation alone will not be
enough to cope with the cumulated effects of climate change
and in the circumstance more than one billion people will be
at greater risk. The report predicts water shortages and higher
risks of flooding for many island communities and coastal so-
cieties such as ours. And of course, the report highlights the
fact that there will be widespread reductions in agricultural
output with crop yields and livestock productivity falling sig-
nificantly. There can be no escaping the fact that ih;- report
has very serious implications for Guyana.
Given the current widespread support for the finding-, of the


2007 Report we will do well to contemplate our roles as individu-
als, institutions and as a universal collective in the sustainable con-
servation of the Earth's resources and, more so, the preservation of
the planet. In as much as all aspects of Man's continued existence
are critical, the one aspect that is particularly crucial at this time,
in Guyana and to all Guyanese, situated as we are, clustered along
the coastal zone, below the level of the ordinary spring tide, is cli-
mate change and its consequences.
In such a cosmos, where does our university stand? What is
our strategy for enhancing the national capability to manage the
impacts and consequences of climate change? Where will the nec-
essary resources come from? Increasingly, it is understood and ac-
cepted that the University, along with its many stakeholders and
like-interest partners, has a critical role to play in enabling Guyana
to acquire the skills and capacities to deal with the challenges of
global climate change. Cognizant of the current environmental risks,
there is a critical need for the University to revisit, upgrade, ex-
pand and diversify its programmes making them relevant to the chal-
lenges of climate change.
In this regard the University has reorganised itself structurally,
with the establishment of a School of Earth and Environmental Sci-
ences in 2005. This new unit is charged with:
enhancing public awareness and education about environmen-
tal problems and issues
developing an appreciation of the fundamental mechanisms
of natural hazards and disasters, vulnerability and risk and their
collective impact on society
applying planning and geospatial skills in the management of
the impacts of hazards and disasters and
developing and streamlining management plans and
programmes for severe damage and disaster situations.
These are all areas of major national concern: concerns
which now assume the importance of enabling the survival of
the state. The University is the national institution, the en-
abling scientific milieu, through which the nation achieves
acceptable levels of preparedness and protection from the in-
evitable and inescapable threats and risks posed by climate
change. How well we do, in the struggle to survive as a na-
tion will depend on the collective efforts of us all and, in this
endeavour, we cannot afford to fail.

Global Climate Change:

A Reality!

By Denise Simmons
Lecturer School of Earth and Environmental Sciences
University of Guyana
"Who says climate change is even happening anyway?"
"I'm not convinced!" "We need more proof" These are just
some.of the opinions we often hear. Additionally, persons have
argued whether climate change is due to human activities or due
to natural causes. In this article, we will discuss the terms glo-
bal warming and climate change and examine the scientific evi-
dence that supports climate change.
The terms "climate change" and "global warming" are some-
times used interchangeably, but technically they are not the
same. Climate change refers to any significant change in mea-
sures of climate (such as temperature. precipilation, or wind)
lasting for an extended period (decades or longer). whether due
to natural factors or processes. or as a result of human activi-
lies. In -mme instances, such as with ihe United Nations Frame-
work Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). climate
change is used to refer to that change in climate lhat is caused
b5 human activities.
Global warming is the term used to describe the average
increase in global temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth's
surface %which can occur from natural and human-induced cause%
tLISEPA. 2006). Therefore, global warming is specific lo an
increase in temperature; while climate change is more encom-
passing and indicates that there are additional changes occur-
ring other than increase in temperature.
While the Earth's climate has changed during its history, it
has been due to natural factors. However. the recent changes
that were detected since the early part of the 1900s. have been
caused primarily by human activities associated with the In-
dusirtal Revolution.
The Intergosemmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
which comprises 2.500 physical and social scientists from
around the world, was established in 1988 to assess informa-
tion on climate change and its impact and how to prevent it. It
is the world's leading authority on climate change.
The IPCC provided overwhelming evidence in Febru-
ary 2007 that global warming of the climate system is "un-
equivocal." Global average surface temperatures have in

Climate Change -the New Big Threatto Biodiversity

Sharifah Razack
Director Education,
Information and Training
Division Environmental
Protection Agency Guyana
Climate Change and

Climate Chainge has
been referred to as
the "new great threat
to Biodiversity" in the Mil-
lennium Ecosystem Assess-
ment (MA) which examined
the linkage between ecosys-
tem health and human well-
being. The four-year (2001-
2005) assessment was funded
by the Global Environment
Facility and conducted by 1300
scientists from 95 countries.
You will note that the concept
of climate change has already
been discussed in another ar-
Biodiversity is a term given
to the variety of life on Earth and
is expressed as the difference
that exists w within a species, be-
tween species and between eco-
system s. An ecosystem is ai

sulr iS al of species in an ecosys-
tem. The lifecycle. feeding and
mating behavior etc. of
biodiversity arc timed to the cli-
mate of an ecosystem e.g. frogs
breed in the wet season and but-
terflies and birds lay eggs so that
they hatch when food is available.
Impacts of Climate Change
on Biodiversity '
Global warming as a facet of
climate change represents a pro-
found and emerging threat to
biodiversity around the world.
As temperatures rise, habitats for
many plants and animals will
change, depriving them of the
homes and niches to which they
have adapted. Changes in climate
patterns will force migration and
shifts in the distribution of
biodiversity. Animals will migrate
to higher latitudes as they seek
to find cooler temperatures to
which they are adapted, while
movements will be more pro-
nounced at higher latitudes and
altitudes where temperatures are
expected to rise more than near
the equator.
Natural or man-made barriers
will impact the

natural tlmoveient
oft species or com-
timunities. The natu-
ral configuration of
-. the landscape may
-s .hinder rtle natural
k. movement of plant
and animals to
More suitable tem-
I i, peratures or rain-
fall. Also, human
Sland-use patterns
may further con-

colmmuniiitv of organisms inter-
acting w ith each oilier and their
n\ iro1n- n l t. It is a stable unit
apablc ot sustlailung itself aind
of adapting to changes within
limits. Ecosystems provide food
and water; control flood and dis-
ease: have spiritual, recreational,
and cultural benefits: and sup-
port nutrient cycling that main-
tains the conditions for life. A
rain forest, river, island, a back-
yard garden, and a pond are all
examples of ecosystems.
Climate is a major factor in-
fluencing biodiversity as it pro-
vides suitable temperature, hours
of sunlight and rainfall for the

fine species to their
natural locations causing them to
perish in the unfavorable tem-
peralure conditions. Mans nIa-
tional parks and protected areas
are surrounded by urban and ag-
ricultural landscapes which will
prevent the simple migration of
species beyond their boundaries.
Scientists have estimated that
up to 60% of the habitats in the
northern hemisphere could be af-
fected by global warming. There
is a growing body of evidence
that suggests global waning is
already having an impact on spe-
cies and habitats. According to
the Natural Resources Defence
Council such effects include the

dying of miangrove forests in the
Caribbean, the shifting of ranges
of marine life northward along
the Pacific Coast and the shrink-
ing of some penguin populations
by about 33% in parts of Ant-
arctica over the past 25 years.
With respect to the trop-
ics. researchers have also ob-
served that future climate
change indicates much el-
evated risks for biodiversity
due to the fact that species.
both flora and fauna, have
smaller ranges and are least
accustomed to fluctuations in
temperature and precipitation
levels. As an example, the
Amazon rainforest is cited as
being vulnerable to climate
change because of particular
risk for increased fire fre-
quency and reduction in for-
est cover.
Rising sea temperatures will
also affect the distribution and
survival of particular marine re-
sources. Corals have already
shown an extremely high sensi-
tivity to minor increases in tem-
perature, while other studies
have shown dramatic changes in
the distribution and survival of
the Pacific salmon.
Rainfall and drought will be
of critical importance to
biodiversity. Extreme flooding
will impact large areas. especially
riverine and valley ecosystems
and cause species to die. Increas-
ing drought and desertification
may occur in tropical and sub-
tropical zones, and there has
been one prediction that that
there will be drying out of large
parts of the Amazon.
On the relatively narrow
habitats of the coastal margins.
rising sea levels may lead to the
squeezing out of important
coastal habitats. The rate of
change of temperature or rainfall
will vary at regional and even lo-
cal levels. The rapid pace of
change of global climate is pre-
dicted to be faster than that ob-
served in the past 10.000 years.
It is unlikely that biodiversity
will be able to adapt as quickly
to these changes. Sedentary and
large tree species are especially
vulnerable to the rapid changes
in climate.
Shifts in the biodiversity

distribution will \ ary with spe-
cies ;and there is no guarantee that
a pre\ will mo\e in proximity to
its predator. This could mean
starvation for the predator or
competition with another species
for prey. Similarly. if a pollinat-
ing insect does not shift with the
plant it pollinates it would be
unable to reproduce. Competi-
lion will also increase when
plants colonise new areas and
compete better than other spe-
cies for nutrients and light etc.
Climate change is influenc-
ing changes in animal behav-

ior and plant flowering sea-
sons. In temperate regions,
birdsong is being reported ear-
lier and spring flowers are
emerging when it was once
winter. On the more positive
side. longer warm periods than
usual may increase the grow-
ing seasons for agricultural
crops and improve productiv-
ity in mid-latitudes and in-
crease the potential for arable
crops at high latitudes. Nega-
tive impacts may include in-
creased ranges of insect pests
and diseases, and failure of
crops in some regions from
drought or flooding.
In addition to causing a armn-
ing effect. increased concentrations
of atmospheric carbon dioxide are
known to increase rates of photo-
synthesis in many plants. as well as
improving water use efficiency. In
this way climate change may in-
crease growth rates in some natural
and agricultural communities.


Guyana like many countries

with los 1. lt ing coastlines is
likely to ha\ e a sex re impact on
their biodiversity as a result of
climate change. One of the ma-
jor effects w ill be oni the man-
groves that contribute to the
protection of the coastal areas
from flooding: With sea level rise
due to climate change. this type
of vegetation is likely to disap-
pear. This will then lead to an in-
trusion of the Atlantic Ocean in
many areas and ultimately a
change in the salinity level of the
coastal soils. This change will
also impact on the coastal flora
as those plants that
are not salt tolerant
will eventually perish.
Secondly. for the
freshwater coastal
swamps and marshes
that lie along thee
coastal belt. the intru-
% sion of saline water
xw'ill also transform
them so that the spe-
cies of plants and ani-
mnals will also be un-
der threat and likely
to disappear. The
change in the ecosystems will
also generate e the growth of news
species some of which may be
detrimental to the environment.
Some species which are depen-
dent onil other species for their
survival will die if the chain is
broken and their means of sus-
tenance is removed.
Thirdly, climate change is
also likely to affect biodiversity
conservation activities in
Guyana as the changing nature
of the ecosystems will require
greater inputs of technical and fi-
nancial resources to ensure that
species are protected and con-
Data bases and information
networks that have already been
well researched and developed
will have to be altered to ensure
that the environmental changes
are not added to the equation
and the need for new informa-
tion will emerge. For. example
plants and animal species that
have become adjusted to the eco-
system may now become mal
adjusted and new species will
have to be developed.
Healthy ecosystems are
critical, not only for the variety

of life but also for the livelihoods
of people around the world. The
rural poor who depend directly
on ecosystems will be mlost af-
fected as essential sentices be-
comte lost. It would become in-
creasingly difficult for crops to
grow. supplies of freshwater.
food and fish to be obtained, and
for the poor to earn livelihoods.
Experts have concluded that
while Climate Change will im-
pact on biodiversity. proper
management of biodiversity can
reduce tile impact of Climate
Change. More specifically. it has
been found that the richer the
biodiversity,. the better able it is
for the ecosystem to adapt to
climate change. This is because
species are better able to resist
environmental pressures and to
perform more diverse functions.
While there is still Imore to
understand about Climate
Change, enough is known about
its impacts and the potential for
adaptation to act now. It is there-
fore urgent that policy makers
around the world take cogni-
zance of the likely impacts of cli-
mate on biodiversity. Conserva-
lionl of biodiversity miist be
given its due recognition as an
adaptation measure o Cliumate
Change. As this is being done it
would also be necessary to fa-
cilitate the success of such mea-
sures by taking action now to
reduce greenhouse gas emllissions
globally. The ability of humans
to adapt to climate change would
ultimately depend on our willing-
ness and commitment at the glo-
bal level to cooperate, fund and
implement adaptation strategies.

creased by about 0.74 oC over the period 1906-2005 (see Fig-
ure la). While this temperature increase may appear small
and may not mean much to many people, it is important to
note that changes of only 4-5 oC were responsible for the
difference between our climate today and when significant
portions of the Earth was covered with ice during the last
ice age. Here in Guyana, an average annual increase inl
temperature has also been recorded (1.0 oC over the time
period 1909-1998) (Guyana's Initial National Communica-
tion, 2001).
It is alarming to note that this warming trend has increased
at a faster rate over the last 50 years; moreover. eleven of the
last twelve years (1995 -2006) ranked among the 12 warmest
years since 1850 (IPCC. 2007). Scientists expect that the warm-
ing will continue into the future, predicting that for the next two
decades a warming of about 0.2 oC per decade will occur. But
what is causing this global warming? The IPCC (2007) concluded
that the global warming observed since the mid-20th century is
"very likely" due to the observed increase in greenhouse gas con-

Although the issue of the changing climate is complex. the
IPCC (2007) has reported observed scientific evidence that the
following changes in our climatic system have occurred (in addi-
tion to the increases in global average surface temperature.
Global average sea level rose at an average rate of about 1.8
tnim per year over the period 1961-2003 as a result of melting of
the glaciers and ice caps and thermal expansion of seawater.
A general decline in mountain glaciers and snow cover.
.i.iific imll, increased precipitation has been observed in
some areas, such as eastern parts of North and South America,
northern Europe and northern and central Asia. While. drying
has been observed in others, such as the Sahel. the Mediterra-
nean. southern Africa and parts of southern Asia. Long-term
trends have not been observed for the other large regions assessed.
More intense and longer droughts over wider areas since
the 1970s. mainly in the tropics and subtropics.
Increased frequency of heavy precipitation events over most
land areas.
Widespread changes in extreme temperatures have been ob-
served over the last 50 years. Cold days. cold nights and frost
have become less frequent. while hot days. hot nights, and heat
waves have become more frequent.

An increase of intense tropical cyclone activity in the North
Atlantic since about 1970. "
It is important to note that the IPCC (2007) also states
that "even if the concentrations of all greenhouse gases and
aerosols had been kept constant at year 2000 levels a fur-
ther warming of about 0.1C per decade would be expected."
This means that global warming and climate change be with
us in the future. These projections have grave implications

for bio-physical, economic. and social aspects of all coun-
tries. as will be discussed in the following articles. There-
fore, while it is imperati e for industrialized countries which
emnit greenhouse gases to take actions to reduce their emis-
sions. it is also necessary for countries. especially vulner-
able countries like Guyana, to pi pare to adapt to the con
sequences of climate change since it is inevitable. Climate
Change is real! We must prepare for the consequences!

As you would have learnt from
other articles in this newspa-

change is caused mainly by
anthropogenic activities re-
lated to use of energy, indus-
trial processes, deforestation
and agriculture. Arguably, it
is an environmental issue of
immense proportions and the
most severe problem that we
are facing today.
For instance. without spe-
cific adaptation measures. sea
level rise will significantly in-
crease the flood risk to our
coastal population. which is ap-
proximiatcly 90 per cent of the
total population. Further. our
tropical forests will die: water
resource stresses will severely
worsen: and the health risks of'
coastal inhabitants will increase

that even if action is taken to
curb the greenhouse gases emis-
sions. climate will continue to
change and the consequences will
impact on Guyana. thereby

Climate Change and Food Securit:

What are the Implications for Guyana?

By Mark Bynoe, PhD
DirectorSchool of Earth and
Environmental Sciences
University of Guyana

Personal assets are often pro-
tected, disposal incomes are
placed in pension plans to be
accessed in the future, and
regular visits to our physi-
cians in an effort to maintain
and/or improve our health
status has become a norm.
But what of mother earth,
the one such resource that
we have and over which we
have been instructed to have
'dominion' over? How long
will we continue to treat her
like the refuse in our bins?
Today climate change, ac-
cording to the AOSIS (2007), is
the most serious environmental
and developmental issue con-
fronting Small Island Develop-
ing States (SIDS) like Guyana.
While there has been some am-
bivalence to take the issue of cli-
mate change seriously, possibly
due to its anticipated long term
impacts, present and continuing
danger indicate that we cannot
postpone adaptation measures.
For low lying areas, and agricul-
turally based economies like
Guyana, the implications are
even more severe as food pro-
duction and the drive towards
food security are likely to be
compromised. This latter'con-
cept, according to the Food and
Agricultural Organization of the
United Nations (FAO/UN) is a
"situation that exists when all
people, at all times, have physi-
cal, social and economic access
to sufficient, safe and nutritious
food that meets their dietary
needs and food preferences for
an active and healthy life". It
places emphasis on consump-
tion, the demand side and the
issues of access by vulnerable
people to food. As such, what
are the implications fo.
According to Guyana's Na-
tional Budget (2007), approxi-
mately 12% of Guyanese are ei-
ther severely (7.0%) or moder-
ately (4.7%) malnourished,
largely because of poor diet and
severe and repeated infections
that afflict the poor (WHO,
2005). While data on deaths due
to malnutrition are not readily
available, it is anticipated that
climate chtr.gc will exacerbate
this tenuous situation locally as
malnourished persons become
more vulnerable, for example, to
malaria carrying mosquitoes as
these insects move into previ-
ously uninfected areas as tem-
peratures increase.
But for a country like
Guyana where agriculture (inclu-

sive of fisheries and forestry)
accounts for approximately
32% of the country's gross do-
mestic product (GDP), for more
than 35% of export earnings,
employs more than 25,000 per-
sons directly, and is the main
source of livelihoods for an even
greater proportion of persons
indirectly, we ignore the effects
of climate change at our peril.
Climate change is projected to
result in a reduction in crop
yields due to drier climates and
lesser rainfall leading to an El
Nino type weather pattern like
that witnessed in 1997/1998;
extended growing seasons; rising
sea levels causing our fragile sea
defenses to come under increas-
ing pressure concomitantly re-
sulting in more breaches and
flooding of ;he land; increased
incidence of pest infestation,
and the possible over-use of
agrochemicals to eradicate the
pests while also seeking to raise
agricultural productivity as soil
fertility declines. These effects
are projected to negatively af-
fect both food production and
food quality. Climate change
therefore, combined with the
challenges of trade liberalization,
has the potential to increase our
dependence on food aid, the sta-
bility and quality of which are
sometimes questionable. Hence,
it is not sufficient to pontificate
about our negligible contribution
to climate change, the reality is
our agricultural sector and food
security will be severely threat-
But many of these effects
will depend upon adaptation
techniques that will be influ-
enced by income levels, market
structures, farming type, the ef-
fectiveness of distributional net-
works. While climate change is
a global phenomenon therefore
and requires a global response,
that response is contingent
upon each one of us beginning
to play our role in protecting
and preserving the virtues of
mother earth. Therefore, it will
be necessary for the policy-
makers in Guyana work with all
stakeholders, and particularly
those of us at the University of
Guyana to. inter alia:

Climate change is a phenomenon that impacts our ecological
systems causing disruptions that impair the biological health
of plants, animals, and humans. This relationship between
human health, disease and climate is thought to predate writ-
ten history. Health, as defined by WHO, is a state of com-
plete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the
absence of disease or infirmity. Climate change will impact
on all of these aspects; as such, this article will attempt to
examine the potential direct and indirect health impacts of
climate change (see figure 1).
WHO (2003) emphasizes the fact that the complexity of the
relationship between climate change and health is not yet fully un-
derstood. This is because of the far reaching effects on the (atmo-
sphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere) major parts of the
Earth's life support system. Thus health effects will vary geo-
graphically with respect to the environment, topography and vul-
nerability of the resident population. The populations in develop-
ing countries are particularly vulnerable since they are constantly
grappling with major public health concerns such as access to wa-
ter and sanitation facilities and the required nutritional intake.

Figure 1. The Potential Health Impacts of Climate Change
Source: adapted from Patz et al., (2000)

Climate change refers to any significant change in measures of
climate lasting for an extended period. Weather extremes, such as,
heat waves have significant impacts on human health. The Stern
report estimates that a 4C rise in temperature could increase the
risk of dengue fever for approximately 2.5 billion people. How-
ever, the primary ways in which heat waves impact health are due
to dehydration and heat stroke. Cardiovascular collapse, cerebrovas-
cular and respiratory distress may all be induced by heat waves.
The Harvard Medical School Bulletin (Sept. 2006) noted that heat
waves have increased in frequency and intensity due to climate
change. The article highlighted the European heat wave of 2003
which was responsible for approximate 35,000 deaths in five Euro-

sensitization campaign on the
threats and effects of climate
change, supporting the devel-
opment of professional
courses and degree
programmes; and
Develop a strong and

service, working closely with
established entities such as the
Guyana Rice Producers Asso-
.ciation and the Guyana Agri-

Business Association.
In this particular case the
cliche 'procrastination is the
greatest thief of time' is apt

getting into the blame game
is useless. To protect our

hance the quality of life of

pean countries. The deaths in Italy (> 18,000) represented an in-
crease of 23% compared with the average annual number of deaths
during the period 1995-2002. Weather conditions are also expected
to adversely affect air pollution which may further increase the risk
of respiratory distress.

Climate change will influence the availability of and quality of
water, an essential for life. These changes will affect the incidence
of diarrhoeal diseases which includes water related diseases such as
cholera, typhoid, and dysentery as well as amoebiasis, giardiasis
and cryptosporidium. WHO [2000] estimates that 1.8 million people
die from diarrhoeal diseases every year, 90% are children under 5
years mostly in developing countries and 88% of diarrhoeal dis-
eases are attributed to unsafe water supply, sanitation and hygiene
McMichael et al., (2004) noted that diarrhoeal diseases are ex-
tremely sensitive to climate indicating that temperature and rela-
tive humidity have a direct influence on the rate of replication of
bacterial and protozoan pathogens, and on the survival of enterovi-
ruses in the environment. Diarrhoeal disease is one of the most im-
portant causes of disease burden in developing countries.
Climate change will have dynamic effects on the hydrological
cycle such that it will increase the frequency and severity of
droughts and floods in many areas: This is because increases in
surface temperatures induce increases in the rate of evaporation and
hence the intensity of rainfall which in turn increases the risk of
flash flooding.
In the tropics diarrhoeal diseases typically peak during the rainy
season. Floods and droughts are associated with an increased risk
of diarrhoeal diseases. This is due to the fact that heavy rainfall
washes contaminants into water supplies, while drought conditions
can reduce the availability of fresh water leading to an increase in
hygiene related diseases. The floods of 2005 in Guyana were at-
tributed to increased rainfall which resulted in an increased inci-
dence of water related diseases. The incidence could be further in-
creased since the coastline of Guyana which is approximately 2
metres below sea level makes the country extremely vulnerable to
flooding due to sea level rise.
Increased incidence of droughts in large parts of Africa and Asia
will adversely affect rain-fed agriculture thus decreasing the food
availability and nutrient intake of the populace placing them at in-
creased risk of malnutrition. Malnutrition both a medical and so-
cial disorder is responsible for 23 million child deaths annually. Ac-
cording to WHO (2003) it is the single most important risk factor
to global health accounting for an estimated 15% of the global dis-
ease burden in disability adjusted life years. The IPCC [2006] has
concluded that climate change could increase the number of hungry
and malnourished people in the 21" century by 80 90 million.
Malnourished individuals are extremely vulnerable to high levels of
infection due to unsafe and inadequate water and sanitation facili-

The complex relationship between climate change and
health cannot be overemphasized. There remains several ar-
eas of scientific and contextual uncertainty since climate
change is one of several global environmental changes that
affects health. This however, does not underscore the need to
act now. It is clear that the indirect impacts are much more
far reaching that the direct impacts and have implication for
the physical, mental and social well being of the citizenry. The
Ministry of Health and the Government of Guyana, in their
quest to accomplish the millennium development goals, must
seek to improve the health surveillance capacity of the coun-
try. This must be done to the extent that it is able to forecast
the size of developing epidemics depending on the degree of
climate change in an effort to provide essential health care.

H A N D O V E R Participants are generally pleased to be part of the project and look forward to tthe additional incomegarnered

from the livestock project. Here is what some of them had to say:


"We are very, very proud to have been a part of that," Mr.
Court concluded.
CHF Country Director Ms. Jean Lowry, in her remarks, spoke
of the role of BCCP 11, and its purpose of trying to build the NGO
sector so it could become a more effective partner with the Govern-
ment in poverty alleviation.
"I think the Government has tried for many, many years to ad-
dress poverty, but it can't do it alone," Mr. Lowry said.
So the role of CHF is to assist organizations like the Airy Hall
Women's Group to try to develop the skills and knowledge and tal-
ents that will make them effective partners with Government.
"And as this process goes along, you will see more and more
programmes and projects that are sponsored by Government, that
are funded by donors, that will be accessible to you," Ms. Lowry
She said that in the future, more programmes will be coming to
the Airy Hall Group, as it has demonstrated its ability to make a
success of programmes in the past.
Ms. Lowry promised the Group a participatory evaluation at
the end of the livestock project, to see what went right and what
went wrong, and to provide assistance to come up with new com-
munity-based programmes to involve more people in the area.
Ms. Lowry congratulated the group on its commitment and hard
work on the project, and said the women were an inspiration to her
and other CHF staffers.
"That is why we find it so easy to work with you. We come
out here and we come back and we say 'Wow, look at what this
group has been doing," the Country Director said.
Chairman of Region Two Mr. Ally Baksh, in his remarks, said
he was encouraged by the achieve-
ments of the Airy Hall Group, and

The Ash-Abhi kicked off with
the sangeet at Prateeksha on
Wednesday night. And, if
wedling guests are to be be-

in true Bollywood style!
There was dance, music and

guessing who won the first
prize for best dance at the
Ash-Abhi's extremely ro-
mantic tango number ironically
from the film 'Kyun... Ho
Caya Na' choreographed by
Sandip Soparrkar was a major
hit. Both Abhi and Ash were
colour co-ordinated in clothes
designed by Abu Jani and

Sandeep Khosla.
Jaya and Amitabh bagged
the second prize for their dance
number on the popular 'Kajra
"I have never seen Amitabh

ported from Rajasthan for the
ceremony. Abhishek and family
apparently went to Ash's house
at La Mer in Bandra in the
evening after which the wedding

party moved on to Prateeksha
for yet another set of song and

Padi & Rice Grading Regulations 2007
To all millers and purchasing agents of paddy and rice

Please be informed that the Guyana Rice Development Board (Padi and
Rice Grading) Regulations 2007 has been signed by the Honourable
Minister of Agriculture Mr. Robert Persaud MBA, MP on the 2"" ofApril 2007
and will be gazetted on 28hApril 2007.

Below are some notable changes under the said Regulations:

1. Weighing of padi and rice

(a) Under Section 3 (3) "any person who has a scale with capacity in
excess of two metric tonnes shall fit the, scale with an electronic
display to show the weight in kilogrammes.

(b) Section 4 (1, states that:
"the price of padi traded for the manufacture of rice shall be
calculated on a metric tonne (1000 Kg) basis where the padi is
cleaned and dried to a moisture of 14 percent".

2. Determination of Moisture

"where the moisture content exceeds fourteen percent, the
moisture deduction chart in the second schedule shall be used to
determine the necessary adjustment in the weight of the padi". -
Section 6(7)

3. GradiniFees and Graders'Licence

Additionally please note that under Section,10 (a) fees for grading a bag of
rice for local consumption shall be twenty dollars and and 11 (1) states the
new feef of five thousand dollars to be paid for the issuance of a Graders
Licence, which is valid for a period of 2 years.

These Regulations are effective immediately and all stakeholders are
requested to comply with same no later than 30 June 2007.

So will Ash arrive for her
wedding in a doli palanquinn)?
Eyebrows were raised, as a sil-
ver doli was spotted at the
Bachchan residence.
An elaborate chandelier
made it way through the gates
of Prateeksha. As a worker com-
mented, "the wedding decor is
grander than the Taj Mahal."
As fans waited for a
glimpse, or even news of the
wedding, they were treated to
some mouth-watering sweets
from Kanpur. Megha Joshi, a
fan who came all the way from
South Africa for the wedding,
said: "I am hoping to see them
just once."
The 19-year-old, who met
the stars in South Africa at the
shooting for "Dhoom 2", said:
"We could not speak to them or
get an autograph as the security
was tight, but we shook hands."

The reel story

......... ...........e -flF

I'm hoping you might be able
to give me some insight.
After nearly eight years of
marriage, my husband an-
nounced he does not want our
life together, doesn't feel the
same about me anymore, and is
moving out to find himself.
During our three counseling
sessions following this an-
nouncement, I sensed he wasn't
interested in working things out,.
and he admitted this was in fact
true. This last year has been
rough on us.
I'm finishing my last year
of medical school, and I have
been offered wonderful oppor-
tunities to travel and obtain
specialized training. So I've
been gone quite a bit, and when
I'm home I'm insanely busy.
I don't think I could say our
relationship has been the best
it's been, but the end of the cra-
ziness of med school is very
close, and I have a good job lined
My husband always said he
supports me in my career am-
bitions. Now he says he feels
we have our own separate lives,


Sharing skills
Changing lives

and furthermore has felt that
way for a long time.
I'm.hurt and confused why
he wouldn't say anything to
me. I knew he had been down
for awhile, but when I asked
him what was wrong, he would
say he didn't like his job or was
disillusioned with the degree
program he had chosen. Now
the truth comes out.
I'm willing to put our rela-
tionship as priority number one,
since I take my marriage vow
very seriously and don't believe
it is right to run away from
Obviously our problems are
mainly with good communica-
tion, since he could never tell me
he felt our relationship was go-
ing under.
I trusted him wholeheart-
edly to live up to the commit-
ment we made each other. I re-
alize commitments take work,
which I'm willing to accept, but
it seems he is not. I believe our
problems are fixable.
He's not sure he even wants
to be married. What's the best
way to understand how some-

one who says he loves you
keeps a secret like this?


Frieda, you want to see this
in terms of right and wrong,
with your husband the guilty
party for withholding his feel-
We could as easily view
you as the physician who noted
all the patient's symptoms but
failed to make the correct diag-
nosis because it was not in her
self-interest to do so.
Viewing your marriage in
terms of right and wrong doesn't
make sense. Ordinary good
people don't want to play the
nagging spouse, so they conceal
their feelings. It's a normal pat-
tern of behavior. Your husband
stayed with you until a major
goal was within your grasp, and
that is to his credit. He didn't
want to be responsible for your
You would have liked a pre-
warning before the end, but
that's like asking the camel to

PESTS and diseases are part of the natural environmental
In this system there is a balance between predators and pests.
This is nature's way of controlling populations. The creatures that
we call pests, and the organisms that cause disease only become "pest
and diseases" when their activities start to damage crops and affect
If the natural environmental system is imbalanced then one popu-
lation can become dominant because it is not being preyed upon. The
aim of natural control is to restore a balance between pest and preda-
tor and to keep pests and diseases down to an acceptable level.
The aim is not to eradicate them altogether, as they also have a
role to play in the natural system. Once a pest or disease has started
to attack a crop, the damage cannot be repaired and control becomes
increasingly difficult.
Where possible, use techniques to avoid or prevent pest and dis-
ease attack in the first place.
Why is natural control preferable to chemical control?
Pesticides do not solve the pest problem. In the past 50 years, insecticide use has increased ten-
fold, while crop losses from pest damage have doubled. There are three important reasons why natural
control is preferable to pesticide use.
First, cost. Using natural pest and disease control is often cheaper than applying chemical
pesticides because natural methods do not require buying expensive materials from the outside.

The Dentist Advises
i 11 i H:| tl' 1


HAVE you ever experienced
dental pain when you eat or
drink anything sweet or sour,
or when the food is hot or
cold? Most people will
describe this as a "shocking"
If the answer is yes, then
you are among the 60,000
Guyanese adults who suffer
from dentine hypersensitivity.
Dentine is a mineralized
tissue transected from pulp
chamber (at centre of the tooth)
to enamel or cementum by
minute tubules. Within the
tubules are protoplasmic
projections ('tentacles of cells)
with the cell body itself being
located in the pulp chamber.
Stimulating.these cells emits one
sensation, pain.
There are currently four
hypotheses of pain transmission
through dentine, of which the
hydrodynamic theory is the
most widely accepted.
According to this theory, the
movement of fluids within the
dentine and pulp stimulates the
nerves causing pain. All external
stimuli translate into
hydrodynamic changes that alter
the pupal equilibrium and elicit

Pain can be caused
mechanically, chemical, thermal
(temperature) or bacterial,
stimuli. Stimulation sources
may include: tooth brushing,
digital (finger) probing,
desiccation (a blast of air),
acids, sweet, sour, hot and cold
products and acids products
from plaque bacteria.
There are varied
predisposing factors to dentinal
hypersensitivity; but no single
cause. The tooth becomes
sensitive after enamel loss or
root surface exposure. Enamel
loss follows mechanical wear
(biting surface wear), neck
abrasion or possibly both
flexures after grinding, which
fractures enamel rods or
chemical erosion (acid foods or
stomach regurgitation).
Gingivital recession
(retracting gums) and
subsequent tooth root exposure
allow more rapid and extensive
exposure of dentinal tubules
because the cementum layer
overlying the root surface is
thin and easily removed.
The many causes of
gingivital retraction include

normal aging. chronic
periodontal disease,
abnormal tooth position in
the dental arch, periodontal
surgery, incorrect tooth
brushing habits and root
preparation for crowns. All of
the precipitating factors allow
the exposure of dental
tubules which create the
conditions for dentine
Treatment modalities fall
into two main categories:
chemical and physical. All
available treatments work to
differing degrees depending on
the treatment and severity of
the patient's hypersensitivity.
Pain is extremely subjective so
that effective treatment often
depends on the individual's pain
threshold. Some desensitizing
agents can be used at honie;.
others require a visit to the

Before taking action tt. control pests diseases it is very
important to make sure that the problem is correctly identi-
fied. Only then can you hope to succeed.
Knowledge of pests and diseases \\ill help you to decide
whether the problem is caused by a pest. a disease, a mineral defi-
ciency in the soil or an environmental factor. A good identification
book may help with this.
Proper identification should be the first step in controlling the
problem and. more importantly, in preventing it from happening
again. Below are some specific examples on the general approach
to natural pest and disease control.
A healthy soil: A soil managed using organic methods will give
plants a balanced food supply. Plants which are fed well, like people.
will be much more resistant to pest and disease. So caring for the
soil is important.
It should be managed in ways that develop and protect its
structure, its fertility and also the millions of creatures for
which it is a home. Caring for the soil involves providing a
regular input of organic residues in the form of animal ma-
nures and plant remains. The aim is to:

Maintain levels of humus (organic material) that give
structure to the soil
Feed organisms which live in the soil
Provide nutrients for crops

Whilst chemical fertilisers appear to improve plant growth, their
use can also have negative effects. A plant may look healthy but
because of the high content of nitrogen given by the chemical
fertilizer, causing fast sappy growth, it becomes attractive to pests.
It has been observed that aphids lay double the number of eggs on
a plant grown with chemical fertilizers compared to organically
grown plants.
A healthy crop: By giving plants the right growing
conditions they will be more able to resist pests and diseases.
Also, the right choice of crop will help to deter pests and
A crop growing in an area where it is not suited is more likely
to be attacked. You should take into account of the soil type, cli-
mate, altitude, available nutrients and the amount of water needed
when selecting your crops.
Plants will only yield well and resist pests and diseases if they
are grown under the most suitable conditions for that particular
To help ensure a healthy crop, weeding should be done early
and regularly to stop weeds from taking nutrients which should be
going to the crop.
Resistant varieties and genetic diversity: Within a single crop
there can be many differences between plants. Some may be tall
and some may be able to resist particular diseases. There is more
variety in the traditional crops grown by farmers. These have been
grown and selected over many centuries to meet the requirements
of the farmer.
Although many of these are being replaced by modem variet-
.ies, seeds are often saved locally. Crops which have been bred by
modem breeding methods tend to be very similar and if one plant
is susceptible to a disease, all the other plants are susceptible as
Although some new modern varieties may be very resis-
tant to specific pests and diseases they are often less suited to
the local climate and soil conditions than traditional variet-
ies. It can therefore be dangerous to rely too much on any
one of them. ,,i
A wide variety or"genetic diversity" between the plants within
a single crop is important. This helps the crop to resist pests and
diseases and acts as an insurance against crop failure in unusual
weather such as drought or flood. It is important to remember this
when choosing which crops to grow.
Crop rotation: Growing the same crops in the same site year
after year can encourage a build up of pests and diseases in the
soil. These will transfer from one crop to the next.
Crops should be moved to a different area of land each year,
and not returnecto the original site for several years. For vegetables
a 3 to 4 year rotation is usually recommended as a minimum. Crop
rotation also helps a variety of natural predators to survive on the
A typical 4-year rotation would include a cycle with maize

With crops such as brassicas and onions which are usually grown
in a vegetable garden the whole year round, the populations of cer-
tain pests and diseases can keep increasing because there is always
a 'iiitable host plant for them. Breaking the cycle can help to solve

"But, Alan," cried I, "that will take us across the very
coming of the soldiers!"
"I know that fine," said he; "but if we are driven back
on Appin, we are two dead men. So now, David man,
be brisk!"
With that he began to run forward on his hands and
knees with an incredible quickness, as though it were
his natural way of going. All the time, too, he kept wind-
ing in-and out in the lower parts of the moorland where
we were the best concealed. Some of these had been
burned over or at least scathed with fire; and there rose
in our faces (which were close to the ground) a blind-
ing, choking dust as fine as smoke. The water was long
out; and this posture of running on the hands and knees
brings an over mastering weakness and weariness, so
that the joints' ache and wrists faint under your very
Now and then, indeed, where there was a big bush
of heather, we lay a while and panted, and putting aside
the leaves, looked back at the dragoons. They had not
spied us, for they held straight on; a half-troop, I think,
covering about two miles of ground, and beating it
mighty thoroughly as they went. I had awakened just
in time; a little later, and we must have fled in front of
them, instead of escaping on one side. Even as it was,
the least misfortune might betray us; and now and again,
when a grouse rose out of the heather and with a clap
of wings, we lay as still as the dead and were afraid to
The aching and faintness of my body, the labouring
of my heart, the soreness of my hands, and the smart-
ing of my throat and eyes in the continual smoke of dust
and ashes, had soon grown to be so unbearable that I
would gladly have given up. Nothing but the fear of
Alan lent me enough of a false kind of courage to con-
tinue. As for himself (and you are to bear in mind that
he was encumbered with a great coat), he had first
turned crimson, but as time went on, the redness be-
gan to be mingled with patches of white; his breath cried
and whistled as it came; and his voice, when he whis-
pered his observations in my ear during our halts,
sounded -like nothing human. Yet he seems in no way
dashed in spirits, nor did he at all abate in his activity;
so that I was driven to marvel at the man's endurance.
At length in the gloaming of the night, we heard a
trumpet sound, and looking back from among the
heather, saw the troops beginning to collect. A little after,
they had built a fire and camping for the night, about
the middle of the waste. At this I begged and besought
that we might lie down and sleep.
"There shall be no sleep the night!" said Alan. "From
now on, these weary dragons of yours will keep the
crown of the moorland, and none will get out of Appin
with winged fowls. We got through in the nick of time,
and shall we jeopardy what we've gained? Na, na,
when the day comes, it shall find you and me in a fast
place in Ben Alder."

About the excerpt
1. Read the passage again and determine single
words and phrases that sum up each character's mind
set. Then write a clear and concise description of the
situation in which they find themselves.
2 Write p conversation between Alan and David.

Just tell anything you think is fitting conversation for
them on this crucial night.
3. Attempt to bring closure to the situation by add-
ing about four paragraphs to the excerpt. Where does
your sympathy lie?
Tips about Skills of Study
Get into the habit of using/practising whatever you
have learnt or else you will quickly lose your capacity
to remember it.
You may find that sometimes things get so bad that
you do not even remember any thing you learned by
the end of the day. This happens when you try to learn
too much at one sitting. Try to understand what you
are attempting to learn!
Some people obviously have better memories than
others. They practise (and find it a very easy exer-
cise) memorizing things like theories, poems, sketches,
and almost any kind of information they are studying.
You also have good memory. Get into the act of memo-
rizing bits of information. It helps improve memory ca-
Good study habits result in an improved memory ca-
pacity. Just make study an active and not a passive
Whenever an unwanted thought tries to etch into
your study time, quickly suppress it by immediately
switching to the topic under study. If, however, the
thought is of some importance jot it down to look into
as soon as the study period is over.
Try to understand that you need to complement each
area of study with a lively interest in the subject out-
side your study hours. Be good to yourself.

1. Relationship of Cause
Let us continue to look at sentence structures and
their necessity. Upon the examination of some sen-
tences, you will see that some. have cause relationships.

A cause relationship is shown in a sentence with the
presence of the word "because," and the word "as" is
also used in the same way. Another common conjunc-
tion is "since", which, like "as", can introduce either
clauses of time or cause.

Look at the following examples:
I have not seen Franklin since his father died.
Since he did not keep his appointment, I have not
seen him. (cause)
A point to note here is that subordinate clauses of
cause are usually divided from the main clause by a
comma when they precede it but not when they follow
Point: "For" is regarded as a coordinating conjunc-
tion and should not be used to introduce a subordinate
clause. Notice the difference between:
They seemed ill at ease; for their mouths were
wide open.
They seemed surprised because their eves
were wide open.

Exercise 1
Find the subordinate clause of cause and say what

Some drcumstantial
evidence is very strong, as
when you find a trout in the
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) Journal,
11Nov. 1850 (pub. 1903)

word each modifies in the sentence.
1. Father Francis had not liked asking for leave, as
there was always so much work for everyone; but he
had not been very well of late and he hid been ordered
to go.
2. "If you are asked to teach a child to draw people,
how would you begin?"
3. "I would teach him first to draw animals because
that is what a child thinks about and likes."
4. I only bring up this matter because you seem wor-
ried by it; but I think I understand why it is so.
2. The Relationship of Purpose
He got to the dentist's early. His purpose (aim
or intention) was to have plenty of time to face the
dentist's tools.
The commonest and neatest way of showing a con-
nection of purpose between two ideas is to use an in-

They left early ini order to have plenty of time.
They left early so as to have plenty of time.
They left early to have plenty of time.

We know it is possible to have a subordinate adver-
bial clause of purpose.
Example: They left early so that they would (might)
have plenty of time ...
Very many relationships of this kind can be expressed
as either cause or purpose without very much differ-
ence in meaning. In the above example we may say:
They left early because they wanted to have
plenty of time to tour the corridors.
But it is not possible to express all relationships of
cause as relationships of purpose. Thus we can say:
Because they left early, they had plenty of-time
to tour the corridors.
Their leaving early can be the reason for their hav-
ing time, but it could not possibly be the purpose of it.
As usual in adverbial clauses a comma is placed be-
tween a preceding subordinate clause and the main
clause, but not usually between a main clause and a sub-
ordinate clause that follows it.

Exercise 2
Change the following clauses of cause into clauses
of purpose.
a) They left early because they wanted to reach
their destination before nightfall.
b) Work should always be carefully read over be-
cause careless errors spoil otherwise excellent work.
c) Because he wanted to have something good to
write in the examination, his mother bought him an. in-
teresting story book.

ARIES -- If you feel as though you've been sacrificing too much at work. in a
relationship or for some family obligations, then stop doing it. It's okay to
focus on yourself for a while -- take steps to get back some of your free time.
After all, you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of oth-
ers. If you're not happy and fulfilled, then how can you be a responsive friend.
relative or spouse? Start trying to find a compromise today.

TAURUS -- You've been feeling more and more comfortable in your own skin
lately, and this is something you should be very proud of. Keep up the good
work! Being secure in who you are will give you a solid foundation that you
can build some amazing things on. Plus, when you aren't worried about how
you're coming off to other people, you can create stronger relationships that
are based on honest emotion. Knowing who you are helps you know who
other people are.

GEMINI -- A disagreement doesn't have to become an argument. When you
see things differently from someone else, you can even have a fun time de-
bating your opinions and ideas. Very few things in life are strictly black or
white -- and exploring the shades of gray can be very educational. Be open
to hearing other people's viewpoints. If someone says something that annoys
you today, don't just ignore it. Ask for an explanation.

CANCER -- Something inside of you needs to be heard -- are you listening?
Your recent feelings of confusion or suspicion are being caused by the sen-
sation that you're being disregarded in some way. But did it ever occur to
you that the person who is disrespecting your needs could be you? It's time
to put your own wants and needs first. Start by giving yourself something
you really want today -- not something material, but something emotional:
undivided attention.

LEO -- If you're feeling thriftier and more conservative than usual but you're
not sure why, don't worry about it! Something inside of you is pulling you
toward a more cautious type of fiscal behavior, and you should let yourself
be pulled. You will end up with a nice little cushion in your bank account
when this phase is over, and you won't have missed a moment of shopping.
Your interests are moving away from acquiring material goods -- you want to
find niore substance, and you will.

VIRGO -- Being among people you respect will provide you with the posi-
tive reinforcement you're seeking right now. Your life is definitely on the right
track, and you need to fully appreciate that fact. So attending a family gather-
ing, volunteering for a nonprofit or political organization, or just attending a
lecture on a topic you feel strongly about are activities you should try. You
need to immerse yourself in a group of people who share your spirit.

LIBRA -- Get ready for one of. those days when it feels as though you're the
only one being flexible -- when you smilingly reschedule that lunch date for
the seventeenth time, for instance. And you might start to wonder when other
people will start compromising for you. But don't be tempted to inconvenience
other people just to teach them a lesson. That's just not you. Face it -- you're
flexible. And being flexible is good!

SCORPIO -- A person you meet up with in a very public place -- at a restau-
rant, a museum or a shopping Mnall -- has something very private to tell you.
It won't be too surprising -- in fact, it will probably only confirm one of your
suspicions. You and this person have something in common, and it's some-
thing that could change both of your lives. Ask a lot of questions, and you
may soon see that your lives fit together in some remarkable ways.

SAGITTARIUS -- Turning the other cheek is a great tactic when discord comes
your way today. Your ability to roll with the punches and keep smiling will
actually help you step out of the fray. If someone approaches you with any
type of compromise today, take it! If you refuse to budge even an inch in
your thinking, you send a message that you're too narrow-minded to be taken

CAPRICORN -- Someone in your social circle is feeling envious of you --
and may start acting unpleasantly toward yoti today. This person wants some-
thing that you have but doesn't appreciate everything that you had to do to
earn it. Pay this jealous behavior no mind -- it will pass sbon enough. If you
take this person's resentment seriously, you'llqnly slow yourself down and
unnecessarily hamper your self-confidence.

AQUARIUS -- You are feeling many contradictory emotions right now, and
your feelings might be confusing you to the point of frustration. You need to
take a step back from them, so you can look' at,things in a more analytical,
objective way. Getting your emotions organizeddll help you understand them
better and launch you into a much more productive phase. So instead of re-
acting to your feelings, start dissecting them.

PISCES -- Try to immerse yourself in music today, as it will enliven the hum-
drum everyday world that surrounds you. If possible, put on your headphones
if you must be among large, anonymous crowds of people today. You need
Your imagination to be stimulated, and.good music will help. Specifically. you
should, choose music that.affects-y ur emotions, and songs that feature lyr-
,i .aopt'ove aid affection: P--Pay;tion to thel.ty the a e you feel.

and Abhishek well?
Abhishek Bachchan is
almost 3 years younger to
Aishwarya Rai. Aishwarya is
1973 born while Abhishek is
1976 born.
All the 3 films in which
Aishwarya and Abhishek were
paired together Dhai Akshar Prem
Ke, Kuch Na Kaho, Umrao Jaan
did not work at the box office.
Ironically, the couple that hit it off-
screen like fire was blamed of poor
onscreen chemistry.
The other two films were
they worked together Dhoom
2 and Bunty Aur Babli were big
hits. But in both these films
they weren't paired together. In
Dhoom 2 Aishwarya was paired
opposite Hrithik Roshan and in

Bunty Aur Babli she just ap-
peared in one item number
'Kajrare Kajrare' which also
starred Amitabh Bachchan.
The duo will come to-
gether again in Ram Gopal
Varma's Sarkar 2 and Karan
Johar's next production which
will be directed by Tarun
Mansukhani. Sarkar 2 will be a
Bachchan family reunion of
sorts what with Abhishek and
Aishwarya coming together
with Amitabh Bachchan.
The duo could have been
seen together in more films if it
weren't for date problems.
Aishwarya was initially offered
the role opposite Abhishek in
Bluffmaster. But when she
couldn't do the film, it went to
Priyanka Chopra. Coinciden-
tally, Priyanka Chopra lost out

Aishwarya worked with
Abhishek's mentor, J.P.Dutta in
Umrao Jaan where Abhishek
supported the central character
of Ash. Abhishek worked with
Aishwarya's mentor Mani
Ratnam in Guru where
Aishwarya supported the title
character of Abhishek.
Aishwarya has earlier
dated Salman Khan and Vivek
Oberoi. Abhishek Bachchan
dated Karisma Kapoor and was
also engaged to her for a brief
period before the engagement
was called off.
Aishwarya was seen in

Welcome to the 4481h edition of
..\ \. "Champion Cookery Corner", a
weekly feature giving recipes and
tips on cooking in Guyana.

This dish is a classic.fronm Central Africa. Though this version is made with beef, Mwantbe
can be prepared with beef, lamb,.fish, or chicken. Serves 4-6 persons.

3 pounds stewing beef cut into I-inch pieces
I tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
' 2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 large onions, chopped
I 8 teaspoon minced habanero chile. or to
7 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, peeled.
seeded, and coarsely chopped

Rub the beef pieces with the lemon juice and
salt. Heat the oil in a heavy stockpot or Dutch
ooen, add the beef and the onions, and cook
until the onions are translucent and the beef is
lightly browned.

Add the remaining ingredients. Ioher the heat.
cover, and cook for 1',/ hours, or until the beef is
fork-tender. Serve hot with white rice.

Although corn is a New World vegetable it has been taken to the heart of much of Africa. It turns up in
a variety of ways throughout the continent, from South Africa's mnealies to East Africa's ugalis to Iest
Africa's mnais grille. Kenya, in eastern Africa, offers a cornucopia of cultures and cuisines to tho.%se
who venture there, from the simple dishes of the Kikuyu to the complex curries and biryanis of the
coastal Swahili culture. This dish is what happens when Africa's love of corn meets the spices of
Kenya's coast. If corn is not in season, you cau use an equal amount of defrosted frozen corn.

I tablespoon butter
I medium onion, coarsely chopped
I clove garlic, minced
'I2 teaspoon INDI Curry Powder
5 cups fresh corn cut from the cob
!' teaspoon cornstarch
I cup coconut milk
2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded.
and coarsely chopped
Salt and Chico Black .- .
Pepper to taste -
-- . -- .

Place the butter in a heavy saucepan and heat over
medium heat until foaming. Add the onion and the
garlic and cook, stinging occasionally, until they are
lightly browned. Add the INDI Curry Powder.
stirring to make sure that the onions and garlic are
well coated with the curry butter. Addthe corn and
continue cooking.

Combine the cornstarch and coconut milk in a
small bowl and add them to the saucepan along
with the remaining ingredients. stirring well to
distribute the liquid e\cnly. Lower the heat and
cook. stirring occasionally. for 7 minutes. or until
the coconut milk is almost all absorbed.

Amitabh Bachchan. The second
one was with Hrithik Roshan in
Dhoom 2. Interestingly Dhoom
2 also starred Abhishek but
Aishwarya was paired opposite
Hrithik. Abhishek too has had
his share of onscreen liplocks
with Lara Dutta in Mumbai Se
Aaya Mera Dost and Antra
Mali in Naach.
Not many know that
Abhishek, Aishwarya and
Salman Khan starred in one
film. It was Raj Kanwar's
Dhai Akshar Prem Ke.
Salman, however, didn't have
any scene with Aishwarya.
He just appeared in a cameo
as a truck driver who gives lift
to Abhishek Bachchan.
